School Reviews

I attended middle school at CDS in the late 90's. The school has always had, and continues to have, an excellent academic reputation. At the time there was no high school, and I remember being sad that I would not longer be able to attend when I finished my junior high years. The teachers were caring and considerate, and the administration was fair and balanced. I hope to send my kids there one day, especially now that they have a high school.
