DSST Public Schools, the winner of the 2018 Broad Prize for Public Charter Schools, has a great deal to be proud of from the Class of 2018. To highlight the graduating seniors, they created a unique way to share 11 of their senior stories. The Denver network of diverse-by-design schools share "senior spotlights," which highlight each seniors unique path to graduation including the graduates' teachers who made a difference in the students' high school careers, and why they're excited to move on to the next phase of life: college.
