From the School - Sponsored
DSST: Elevate Northeast Middle and High School is a public, tuition-free, STEM-focused charter school located in Denver’s Montbello neighborhood. Our Core Values, respect, responsibility, integrity, curiosity, courage and doing your best, are foundational to all we do.
We believe that by holding our students to a high standard, and through offering them high support, they will thrive academically. Our small school setting allows teachers and students to develop and nurture close relationships to create an inclusive, strong community and a culture where every student is valued for who they are and their successes.
Close, caring relationships are at the heart of our approach and our school culture intentionally fosters strong relationships. We prepare students for college, with an emphasis on developing students through liberal arts learning (reading, writing, mathematics, and science). Students succeed through classroom environments that are structured for success with clear academic and behavioral expectations, and flourish in our many extracurricular activities and athletic programs. Ultimately our goal is to ensure that our students are prepared for college, career and life.
College Credit Opportunities at DSST: Elevate
DSST: Elevate offers a variety of opportunities in high school to earn college credit. Some of these opportunities exist within a pathway, and some do not. The table below shows all college credit bearing opportunities offered at DSST: Elevate Northeast High School.
The mission of the Athletic Department at DSST Elevate is to promote the academic, emotional, and physical development of our students through teamwork, sportsmanship, and athletic competition. We currently offer basketball, soccer, flag football and volleyball, and we will continue to add more sports in the years to come!
In the 11th grade year, all DSST students participate in a 10-week long internship. The intention of the internship program is to give students an opportunity to explore different career paths and apply the learning they’ve done in classes to a real-world job. Each school has an Internship Coordinator, who is responsible for finding organizations and matching them with student interns based on the student’s interest. Students have been placed at organizations like the Denver Zoo, Atlas Physical Therapy, Mike Johnston for Colorado, and Teach for America, among others.
