Denver School of Science and Technology

Introduction : Team : School : Narratives : Costs : Images : Keywords


This innovative charter high school has its origins in a grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and an initiative by Colorado Governor Bill Owens. It is the first of four demonstration schools intended to serve as a model for future Colorado public schools. A fundamental goal of the school is to increase underrepresented students (40% low-income, 45% female) who succeed in math and science at both the high school and secondary levels. As part of an urban neighborhood under development on the site of Denver’s former Stapleton airport the school is an integral part of Stapleton’s Master Plan, and was designed to meet the design guideline objectives for a walkable community.
