Advisement is an important part of meeting our mission as a school. In 2017-18, advisements meet three times weekly, briefly before lunch on Mondays, and Wednesdays and Fridays from 7:50 to 9:20. Advisement is a time to build community, catch up on work, develop student portfolios, discuss current events, attend community meetings, and more. This is also an ideal time to develop service project ideas and log the service hours students have already completed.
In order to graduate with a DCIS diploma, high school students must complete 40 hours of community service, 20 hours of school service and attend 16 special events. In order to graduate with a DCIS honors diploma, high school students must complete 80 hours of community service, 40 hours of school service and attend 32 special events.
