Dr. Heine has been with us for 2 years now and has brought new life and excitement to our school by her positive attitude towards education and an all school sense of community. So much has changed for the good due to her innovative ideas and her can-do leadership. Thanks, Dr. Heine!
My granddaughter has been attending this school since age 3, I cannot imagine her going anywhere else. Her education and support of thereof has been wonderful. The teachers and staff here really care about the student AND his/her family.
With more than half of the teachers having advanced degrees, the classes being kept much smaller than the national average and continuing education for the teachers as well...YCDS teachers are absolutely effective.
Students have intense studies within school hours that supports not only their education, but also the well-rounded development of each student. This well-rounded development includes the real-life experiences and interactions that only occur while with family and within the community. For this reason, it is my belief that the homework is assigned within reason.
YCDS students are encouraged to reach outside of their comfort zone with determination and open minds. They are supported in taking on new endeavors with enthusiasm and wonder, resulting in self-confidence as they grow.
The students at YCDS are prepping for college. Therefore, from the first day at YCDS, they are taught to present themselves as professionals, respecting others and the experiences/knowledge that others have to share.
