Open Houses & Shadows

                                             "Nothing is lost by not trying...except a valuable opportunity." Triumph! October 26, 2017. The emotional and final game of the year for the first graduating class of senior Girls Varsity volleyball. The home game ended in a hard-fought three match victory for the team, three of whom founded the club just last year. This success is emblematic of their team's drive and happiness.   We hope that these optimistic young women will inspire you to apply for d.tech even though the limited number of spots for Open Houses and campus visits are booked. The March lottery determines who will be able to enroll, and your family is still very welcome to apply. Please keep the door open, and read more below.

Dear Families,

Design Tech is a relatively small high school, and although Open Houses and shadow spots are now booked full, the enrollment season is ongoing and active and your interest continues to be very important to us.

Please apply! 

d.tech will be accepting applications from January 3 to February 28, 2018 prior to the March lottery. The application will be posted online on the Application dropdown menu on the Enrollment tab at the top of this page, which you can also access by clicking HERE. Be sure to register at your local high school district office - where there will also be paper versions of the application - before mid-February if you live in the San Mateo or Sequoia Union High School Districts. California residents not living in these districts are also welcome to apply. The lottery will ultimately determine who receives an offer to enroll at the school.

Any CA resident applicant who receives an offer in the March lottery, will have an opportunity to visit the campus, and their parents and guardians will be able to tour. This may feel late in the decision process, but we have received consistent feedback that it's extremely helpful to get fresh and authentic insights into d.tech closer to decision time.

We also strive to provide detailed information on this website, including videos, newsletters, images and articles to will help you imagine if d.tech has the programs and values you are seeking in a high school. One most recent example is this video, called "GORILLAS IN THE CLASSROOM".  Even though you may not have been able to attend one of the brief Open Houses to see our student panel, videos like this give you a strong insight into the student body, level of engagement, and type of opportunities the school has to offer.

For more information like this, please click on IN THE NEWS. Important insights are also to be found on the Curriculum and College Prep tabs above. 'Frequently Asked Questions' from previous Open Houses are on our FAQ page here
