Community

According to a survey done by Independent School Management, one of the most important considerations on the part of parents when choosing a school is that it has a safe and caring community. From the homey entrance, to the faculty who know each and every child, to the older students who happily look after their younger schoolmates, there is no question that here at DDS it feels more like the neighborhoods of old than an impersonal institution.
