Elementary Overview

DCS provides a strong foundation in all the basics. Phonics is stressed in the reading curriculum. Music, art, physical education, and computer classes complete the total curriculum. Bible is taught each day in the classroom and students attend a weekly chapel service.

The Terra Nova Test for Christian Schools is used to evaluate a child's academic growth. Our students usually score one to two years higher than their grade level. The tests indicate our students are challenged and are achieving well beyond their anticipated level. The course of study has been developed in accordance with the standards prescribed by the Ohio Department of Education.
