DCS ACADEMIC OFFERING
DCS remains dedicated to our academic excellence while being inspired by innovation, and the importance of 21st century learning skills. Our academic offering encompasses a nurturing learning environment to all students. The educational pathway starts in Preschool with a concentration in child development, and strong focus on early stimulation. Educational studies move forward to Elementary School where innovation becomes an essential part of learning. The initiation of research, writing processes and scientific projects emerge. Later, Middle School years offer a basic standpoint for induction years for college preparation. Much emphasis is placed on project-based learning and real-life problem solving. Finally, we reach High School where dominant skills in college life take over and finalize the student’s preparation. We commend your decision to study at this dynamic institution that offers a signature engaged learning experience. At DCS, you are on the path to reaching your educational, professional, and personal goals. It is our commitment to offer a first-rate environment as you pursue scholarly, discovery and personal growth.
