DCIS students practice and model the school’s five core values, which are the principles that guide our behavior both in and outside of school.
We do what we say we’re going to do and we do what’s right, even when no one is watching.
We aim high and work with purpose to overcome obstacles and achieve our goals.
United by our common humanity, we respect ourselves and others, both individually and as group members, honoring each other’s perspectives and celebrating our differences.
Working together, we challenge each other with out-of-the-box thinking, encourage everyone’s input and find joy in our mutual achievements.
We learn best by thinking carefully about what we’ve done, learned or experienced — what we’re proud of, what we could have done better, what we’ll do differently next time.
