At DCI we believe in providing abundant opportunities for students to develop and maintain healthy minds and bodies. One of the IB Learner Profile traits is to be Balanced and at DCI we strive to provide the proper balance between work and play so that students can be successful in and out of the classroom. Through our student life activities, we help students to understand the importance of intellectual, physical and emotional balance to achieve personal well-being for themselves and others.

Students have the right to feel safe and secure in their learning and social environment at school. Please review our Bullying Prevention Policy. Our Student and Family Handbook is available, and Manual para el Estudiante y la Familia as well. (The signature page is here, and en español.)

Students are able to participate in lunch clubs, after school clubs, athletics, homework help, and field trips through our ACE and extracurricular programming.
