The CDS learning experience is designed as a continuous journey of self-development from Early Childhood to our High School commencement. We believe that every year spent at CDS is an uncommon opportunity for your child to engage with a coherent curriculum that is developmentally appropriate, focused on your child's learning, and preparatory for a world beyond school.

Our curriculum (what we teach, how we teach it and how we know we are successful) is constantly changing and dynamic in scope and sequence. In getting to its essence, we find it very useful to strip it down to a few ‘essential questions' that will give you a sense of our approach to teaching and learning at CDS.
