Why DGS?

Expert Faculty.

 

More than degrees, certifications, and experiences, our teachers have perfected the ability to create a loving and respectful environment at DGS, so students can take learning risks and build independence – be that through overnight field trips, being out in the world or simply in the classroom.

Our How

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

I chose your school because there's a lot more learning about life than math and reading. I want my kids to be thinkers, kind, compassionate and aware. I think your school makes a well rounded child. There are 2 things that blow me away about my kids going to your school - the freedom they have to learn allows them to learn at a much higher level than traditional schools, and the kindness and compassion they receive and learn to give to others is worth its weight in gold.
