SST is a science magnet school for 9-12th grade students who are motivated and enjoy learning. Course offerings include life, physical and earth sciences, math and computers, as well as a rich variety of language arts and social studies classes. Spanish is the only foreign language offered. Writing, thinking and discussion skills are developed in all classes. High expectations, regular homework, and challenging projects help students develop their minds, while fieldwork and 12th grade internships expand learning beyond the school. At SST, all students are accepted as individuals, and the small school setting fosters a strong community. SST students enjoy extra activities such as dances, Drama Club, GSA, Math League, Mock Trial, Model U.N., Science Fair, Science Bowl, Robotics Team (through Westview H.S.), The Hub (student-led newspaper), Ultimate Frisbee, service clubs, and more. And while SST attracts many TAG students, many students without the TAG designation have talents and gifts that enrich SST. Students graduate with a BSD diploma, and most go on to college.
