DCIS is in a constant process of growth and improvement, and this brings along personal progress and development.  For 15 years, I've had the opportunity to be part of an amazing staff, who is 110% committed to keeping up to what is called the Mission and Vision of the institution, but actually, is just the essence of what we believe education is about and the fulfillment of a woman's dream.  I honestly believe that together, Teachers and Leadership Team we have made of DCIS a unique place for a child to develop to his or her full potential.  And for that, I am eternally thankful.
