We're looking for the square pegs, the restless visionaries, the makers, the daydreamers of the highest caliber in the bay area. The application consists of questions that help us get to know you, your story, your strengths, your skills and your passions; all the things that will make our school great!

The  DSX opportunity is equitable and competitive because our pool of students reaches far beyond academic record and goes deep into one’s passion, purpose and potential. 

The process we use to get to know the whole authentic student (inspired by our learning partners, Shinebright and E3) is rigorous in a very different way than traditional high schools; we ask students dig deep into why they do what they do, how they're going to make themselves useful to the world, and what DSX can do to help them realize that purpose. 

Here's what you need to know:

The DSX application process is currently closed as we build the school. DSX is slated to open for the 2018-19 school year. HOWEVER, students and families that have used the application questions and the DSX School Choice Venn have found them very useful in choosing their next school journey.

Please follow DSX on a social media of your choice for updates @designschoolx and #DSXOAK

We hope you leave our process discovering new things about yourself as a learner.
