We loved our kids to DCCS in August of 2020. We came from a public school background. Our favorite things about Dream City are 1) smaller class sizes with teachers who truly care about their students 2) elementary chapel is OUTSTANDING 3) the Fine Arts program has been such an impactful place for my kids to flourish. Overall, we feel that the Biblical worldview our kids are receiving is priceless. We are so thankful for the school staff and administration.

This school has been so great to my son. He has done so well at this school. All of the staff make him feel right at home. During this COVID time it has been great place for him to be able to feel like a normal kid at the school and not worry about the crazy world every where else! Thank you so much Dream City! :-)

Sending our kids here has been such a blessing. The small classes really give one on one education to them. This year particularly has been amazing with COVID. They are very concerned about safety but also allow the kids to live as normal as possible. To see the fire inside of them for Christ...it has been wonderful!
