Core Values

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.

Integrity

We do what we say we’re going to do and we do what’s right, even when no one is watching.

High Expectations

We aim high and work with purpose to overcome obstacles and achieve our goals.

Diversity

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.

Collaboration

Working together, we challenge each other with out-of-the-box thinking, encourage everyone’s input and find joy in our mutual achievements.

Reflection

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.
