GREEN VALLEY RANCH – The U.S. Department of Education is figuring out what we already knew: Green Valley Ranch is home to one of the best schools in the nation. The Denver School of Science and Technology: Green Valley Ranch High School (DSST) has been honored with the prestigious National Blue Ribbon Award. It’s one of only 279 high schools in the United States to be honored in 2016.
Von Miller, a Denver Broncos linebacker, surprised the students at an assembly on Wednesday, Oct. 19, to help celebrate the school’s success and well-deserved national recognition. The U.S. Secretary of Education, John King, made the announcement around 11 a.m.
According to Secretary King, while each school is chosen for different reasons, they all have qualities in common: they work hard for their students, serve children from all backgrounds, and lead them to the highest levels of achievement. DSST: Green Valley Ranch students’ accomplishments are recognized, as are the strong relationships between the school and the neighborhood.
