dsx is designed to inspire self-aware innovators and empathetic leaders. dsx knows it does not have the answers to the dilemmas of the modern world and dsx believes that you do. our school will empower you to navigate the complexities of your world with creativity and compassion; therefore...

YOU will build the school with your own hands

The first day of school you will arrive and it will be empty. We will fill the school with our personal and shared stories.

The first week of school, we will visit Stanford, Cal, Kaiser Oakland, google, skateparks, Laney college, Pixar, architect studios, Oakland Hub; all places to inspire the design of our school and the design of your future.

The first month of school we will have practiced the skills of design thinking, engineering, wood/metal fabrication, digital and hand rendering, collaboration and trigonometry (to name a few) in order to design and build our shared learning experience, space and furniture.
