The EPIIC Approach

Going beyond what students learn and focusing on how they learn. A good education should demand engagement above what can be passively delivered by lecturing or writing on a whiteboard. At DCDS, the goal is to give students the ability to face unfamiliar problems and creatively find solutions. This is what EPIIC instills in the DCDS student.
