The original campus of the Denver School of Science and Technology announced Thursday it will change its name to honor a street, rather than a former mayor with ties to racist groups.

Students at DSST Stapleton, located at  2000 Valentia St., participated in a process to consider renaming their school, which is in a neighborhood named for Benjamin Stapleton, a Denver mayor in the 1920s who was a member of the Ku Klux Klan.

The school’s new name will be DSST Montview, for the street where the school sits. The school was originally called DSST, but added the geographic designation after it opened a second campus.

“Montview is a street that stretches throughout much of northeast Denver and into Aurora — all the way from CU Anschutz, through Park Hill, and to the Denver Museum of Nature & Science in City Park,” the school said in a news release. “DSST: Montview is a symbolic name that represents the very real connection that this founding school has to the broader city.”
