Open Quote Children receive a wonderful education here. I choice my children into DCC as an out-of-district parent. The academics are well worth it! My children are also invoved in extra-curriclar activities, including sports. The staff is high quality. Both the teachers and the administrative staff is approachable. All the driving to and from school has more than paid off. I have not looked back since I made the choice to send my children to DCC. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
