Located in Lakewood, we’re a beacon of hope for struggling students who’ve been unable to find their place in traditional high schools.

DSS is like a second home to me, and the staff is like family. It’s not like any other school. Out of all the tough times of loss, grief, depression, and even just those bad days, DSS has always been right there to support me. I love that even though the school is small, it makes such a big difference. Thank you for being the change in student’s lives. I’ll never forget how amazing you are! Next, I’d like to study to be an interior designer.
DSS helped me become a new person, and I’ll be the first one in my family to graduate. I plan on going to trade school to become an electrician. If it wasn’t for DSS, I’d be in jail or possibly dead right now. This is by far the best school there is.
DSS helped not only me, but my family as well and we are very thankful. This school teaches you academically and helps you learn about yourself. They taught me about skills I didn’t know I had and helped me reach deeper into learning. The one thing I’ll always remember is the way they taught me to love and appreciate not only myself but also those around me. I’m planning to go to college for medical training.
Being at DSS taught me responsibility and personal value. I want to thank them for the patience they had with me and for their teaching. Next, I’m going to further my education through a community college or trade school.
DSS is a special place to me because they showed me the true meaning of hope. I want to thank them for always pushing me to be better. They saw it in me and knew I could do it. Most importantly, thank you DSS for getting me back into my faith!
