Open Quote My daughter is presently an 8th grader at DCIS. To say her experience since 6th grade has been transformative would be an understatement. She has thrived in an environment that encourages creativity, student voice and a fluency in cultural and global issues. The school did struggle over the past few years as it transitioned from an all-application school to an open enrollment school, but this year is going great and my daughter couldn't be more thrilled with her teachers and her classes and the amazing clubs and activities she is able to experience.

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.
