DECS Ideals

At DECS, we work to reach the whole child. We value each student and actively strive to establish a deep sense of connection among students, families, and our learning community.

  • Small class sizes and targeted small-group instruction help students, staff, and families form strong relationships.
  • Homebase communities give students and families consistency and connection throughout their middle school years, and homebase teachers help families keep up with the changing middle school landscape.
  • Restorative Practices support connection and community and help students thrive in their relationships with others.
  • School and community events form traditions and create unity.
