Middle School

SCHOOL DAY: 8:00 AM - 3:05 PM

CDS Middle School continues to focus on the whole child; nurturing academic growth and stamina, fostering social-emotional maturity, and maintaining high expectations of character and kindness.  Students are encouraged to be appropriate risk-takers and empathic citizens in order to discover new passions, understand new perspectives, and promote strengths that will lead to community and global impact.


The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP), teaches our students to think critically and ask fundamental questions. The engine driving the MYP through every class moves on the belief that all students can be taught strong applicable skills to independently solve real-world problems. The learning environment challenges them to strive for their personal best and develop a passion for learning.
