Why DCD?

An Exceptional Place to Learn...

DCD is more than just a school—it’s a dynamic community of students, teachers and parents connected by a passion for learning. It’s a place where students can feel free to be themselves, take risks and explore their individual traits and talents—where teachers recognize differences in learning styles and have the flexibility to explore a variety of educational practices designed to engage students and encourage greatness—where parents are welcome partners in the many aspects of school life—where all can feel a sense of belonging. 

DCD Parent Voices

“I watched my boys leave DCD armed with a strong sense of self and a set of tools to help them navigate the challenges and rigors of high school. And many of their interests that were sparked at DCD, whether academic, musical or athletic, turned into strong passions they were eager to pursue during high school and college and continue to define who they really are today. “

A passion for learning and teaching

Energetic, creative, vibrant, dedicated, nurturing and highly experienced—these are words that collectively describe our faculty.  Listen to what they have to say about teaching at DCD.
“DCD is a wonderful environment for all of our children to seek out the best that each can be. So much of what we want to instill in them is the ability to interact with others in a positive way, to communicate, to deal with adversity, to strengthen their confidence and speak out when they have something to say. We want them to be comfortable taking chances and be willing to fail and learn from mistakes. The teachers at DCD are the most critical element in this part of their development.”
