Northfield High School is planned as a liberal arts and sciences high school with a challenging and exciting academic program and a full array of electives, athletics, clubs and after-school activities. The school will open with a freshman class in the fall of 2015 and grow by one grade per year. All students will participate in the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program. The school model will encourage student creativity, self-awareness, and collaboration and interaction among students with different interests as we develop a fully inclusive school community.
The Denver School of Science and Technology (DSST) is Stapleton’s first charter high school. And every year, DSST sends several Denver Public school students into the Colorado workforce by requiring juniors and seniors to complete an internship. It’s all part of why 100% of DSST’s graduates were accepted to college over the last few years.
