It's Who They Become

DCDS provides innovative opportunities for students to solve problems, think critically and apply their knowledge. In Middle School, students are separated into two unique programs. In our 4/5 experience, students develop independence and explore varied interests. As they move into 6/7/8, they build leadership skills and challenge themselves in the supportive environment of our Advisory Program.
