From the Seventh Grader who stops to help a younger child with a loose shoelace, to the positive spirit of the DCD Olympics, to the warmly welcomed parent volunteers, evidence of a perfectly joined community is everywhere at DCD.
The daily interaction of adults and children of all ages teaches by example and fosters the joy and openness of childhood along with a growing sense of responsibility. Children absorb not only a strong academic foundation but also a culture of kindness and gentleness that becomes part of their nature. School is a happy, safe place where students and teachers genuinely care about each other.
DCD is a dynamic community sustained by a passion for learning. Teachers communicate with parents, parents trust teachers, and all work together to create a solid base for a lifetime of achievement, awareness, passion, and compassion.
