CDS is a Godsend. My daughter has flourished academically and socially in the very student-centered, nurturing environment. The teachers are top-notch and the experience has been a breath of fresh air. She runs into the building because she's so excited to go to school!

This is the top school in Charlottesville. Too many wonderful things to write. Schedule a tour. Seriously. My reason for writing: Much of the information listed in this database is incorrect: The CDS campus is conveniently located DOWNTOWN at 320 10th St NE, Charlottesville, VA 22902, which is diagonal from the old Martha Jefferson Hospital building. CDS serves preschool through middle school. (2 years old through 8th grade)
