Mission and Vision


Our mission is to engage all students in meaningful and challenging learning experiences and create a safe and inclusive environment that encourages student advocacy, active participation, and academic and social emotional growth. 

All students will be successful if we, the staff of DHS, set and hold students to high expectations and model the habits, behaviors, and skills we wish to see in our students. 


All students will become lifelong learners and leaders in their community who demonstrate the essential 21st century skills of communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity.

All DHS students will be college and/or career ready and will contribute to a global society.
