We know you'll love our school.
Our school year has started virtually and with that, all of our schools visits (both webinars and tours) will be accessible exclusively online. As a network, we are choosing to view this challenging moment as an opportunity. It’s an opportunity to live our values, to use technology in new ways and to foster innovation and creativity. Our commitment to our students remains unwavering, even during this difficult time.
So what exactly should you expect in the webinar and tour?
In the webinar, you will watch a pre-recorded presentation from a school leader. You will learn about academic programming, school culture and our Core Values, extracurricular opportunities, and how each school will support your student to achieve their dreams.
On a virtual tour, you will view our community spaces, classrooms, and other key points in our building. You will learn about each space as you virtually explore our school building.
We understand the desire to see our school in-person, and if that opportunity becomes available, we will notify everyone who has viewed our virtual visit materials. So, we encourage you to sign up below to receive digital school visit materials in your email inbox!

ABOUT OUR SCHOOL
Located at 2000 Valentia Street, DSST: Montview High School serves grades 9-12.
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.
We commit to create a welcoming, values-driven environment for anyone that enters our school in order to create a vibrant and inclusive DSST Community. Every individual has their own unique set of personal values. Living a values-driven life is an ongoing journey for staff, students and families at DSST and beyond. DSST was founded on six Core Values, which create common agreements to develop a strong, healthy community. Staff and students agree to live out these Core Values for the purpose of creating a stronger community and sense of belonging. Healthy communities support individuals to become the best version of themselves in order to contribute to the human story. We create shared commitments, aligned to the following Core Values to create strong DSST communities which help us achieve our mission:
We appreciate each person and their story through our words, actions, and attitudes. We value their unique perspective and treat others with dignity.
We acknowledge that our actions and choices impact ourselves and our community. We take ownership for what we do and how we choose to do it.
We act and speak with honesty, fairness, and thoughtfulness. We consistently align our words and actions.
We possess the confidence and resolve to take risks, push ourselves, and persevere in the face of pressure, adversity or unfamiliar circumstances.
We are eager to learn, question, and explore. We have a thirst for knowledge, a love of investigation, and a desire to learn about ourselves, our community, and our world.
DOING YOUR BEST
We put our best effort into everything we do. We know that individual and collective effort are required for our community to thrive.
