I would not be the person I am today without DBCS. I learned so much about God and the Truth, and I know I am ready to move on to the "real world" next year in college. DBCS provides an awesome, loving environment where teachers sacrifice their time to engage in their students lives. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to attend such an amazing school. If you are still looking for a place to send your child, please consider DBCS. You will not regret it. As long as your child makes the most of their time there, he/she will come out a man/woman living for God.
