How can I learn more about DGS?
Attending an upcoming information session is a great way to meet us, see our space, and to get all your questions answered. It is also the first step in our admissions process. All parents/guardians are asked to visit the school before submitting an application. If the information session days and times do not work for you, please feel free to make a private appointment. We love showing people our school home and all we do here!
What is a typical day like at DGS?
The best way to peek into DGS is to visit our Facebook page or Instagram page for a glimpse into our everyday activities and philosophies. Also, feel free to make an appointment to visit during a typical school day to see us in action.

How is food and food allergies handled at DGS?
All students eat a snack and lunch at DGS, and all snacks and lunches must be brought from home. Also, each child is expected to have a full water bottle each day. We determine if a food will be banned from DGS according to our population each year. If we have a student with a severe allergy to any food, we will ban that food from school.
How are your multi-age classrooms structured?
Our multi-age approach in all classes is similar to the Montessori approach. We have four levels (or classes) in our school:
Primary is ages 3 and 4, and kindergarten
Lower Elementary is 1st, 2nd, and 3rd
Upper Elementary is 4th and 5th
Middle School is 6th, 7th, and 8th
Do you plan on becoming a charter school?
No, we do not have any intention of becoming a charter school. Our plan is to remain a private school.
