The DC middle school provides a wide range of co-curricular programs that exemplify our core values. We offer activities in academics, the arts, athletics, and outreach. This variety draws almost 90% of our middle school students to take part in an after-school activity during the school year.
Academic clubs highlight our core value of scholarship. They allow for deeper exploration of academic disciplines, and they provide an extra challenge for students who are eager to stretch and test their knowledge and understanding of various topics. In the past five years, our Robotics Team has twice qualified for the VEX Robotics World Championships.
