Going beyond what students learn and focusing on how they learn.

A good education should demand engagement above what can be passively delivered by lecturing or writing on a whiteboard. At DCDS, the goal is not to try to keep pace with technology or globalization of the world's thinking and economy but instead, the focus is to place students ahead of that growth by giving them the ability to face unfamiliar problems and creatively find solutions. To apply that which they know, to build frameworks for solutions, and to be the innovators that others chase-that is what EPIIC instills in the DCDS student.
