Culture of Why
Inquiry is the heart of learning at DCC Elementary, as students investigate the 'why' behind their studies. For example, new knowledge is acquired at the school’s Inquiry Zone embedded in the Library Media Center. Fifth graders continue the discovery process, becoming experts on early and modern explorers.
