The CDS Difference » Core Curriculum

Core Curriculum

Every day, each of our students work—both individually and in groups—in the core areas of language arts, social studies, math, science, and physical education. The hands-on learning that we encourage throughout our program, coupled with our expert faculty’s commitment to personalization, touches every child in a personal way.

We encourage our students to develop and follow their passions; challenge them in areas they love; and support them in areas that need development. We focus on the whole child, fostering the myriad connections that we know are forming in these early elementary years. We also support and stretch their learning with exposure to Spanish, STEM MakerSpace, Art, Music, and Library.

Our Curriculum

Our language arts, social studies, math, and science curricula are taught by subject matter experts who are passionate about their disciplines and our students. CDS students receive exposure to each core subject every day, a fact that sets CDS squarely apart from its peer schools.

Our low student-to-teacher ratios enable us to provide a highly personalized, premier preparatory experience throughout our program.
