DSST Public Schools Mission statement reads:
DSST Public Schools transforms urban public education by eliminating educational inequity and preparing all students for success in college and the 21st century.
We take this mission seriously. This past week, one of the most important measures of whether we are accomplishing this mission was released – college remediation rates. Last year, DSST: Stapleton High School had the 6th lowest remediation rate of all public high schools in Colorado (who have more than 16 students who matriculated in college).
