The staff and faculty at DCS desire to make a godly impact on students during the school day, at school activities, and in the community. They see their occupation as service to young people and families.
All full-time faculty members are required to have a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree from a recognized college or university. Many DCS teachers have earned advanced college degrees, and are certified (or certifiable) by various state and national educational associations.
Class sizes are limited which allows the teachers to go beyond the basic educational experience. As godly role models, DCS teachers influence the students spiritually, socially, and emotionally.
