Why Choose DGS? 

  1. One of seven core values of DGS is Relevance, and that is why our 6th graders head out for excursions over ten times a year. These excursions link class concepts to the real world.  The highlight is always the 4-day camping trip to Moab. We look forward to taking our incoming group of 6th graders to Moab in the spring of 2020.

  2. The new Northfield Campus will be led by Erin Miller and Kartal Jaquette. Kartal Jaquette has led the current middle school for the last four years and Erin has been on the school leadership team for four years as well. Both Erin and Kartal pride themselves as being organized and intentional leaders.

  3. DGS incorporates sustainability concepts into our units of study.  This project-based work ensures the next generation gets the benefit of a more long-term approach to the opportunities and challenges students will face in the future. Whether the focus is fiscal sustainability, health and nutrition, environmental sustainability or social justice, these units of study make learning engaging and provide a key life skills.

  4. The number one value of DGS is Community.  As such, we are determined to meet the community's desire to have daily Spanish, a robust sports program and dynamic range of the arts. We expect students to be enriched by these choices during the school day but also after school as well.
