Emotional development is part of DCC’s academics. Through teacher-led clubs, students learn kindness, compassion and ethics – traits that support and clear pathways for learning. Because of DCC’s pre-K through high school campus, students gain social perspectives through mentorships with upperclassmen.
DCC Elementary’s Inquiry Zone is a do-it-yourself creative space where students create projects to further their understanding of their studies. Working together or individually (grown up are invited, too), children establish 21st century skills in STEM subjects, while fulfilling state educational standards.
