At DVFS, we honor creativity and the unique mind and talents of each individual- encouraging students to maximize their potential to learn, build self-esteem, and come to appreciate their unique differences. The belief in each person's inherent worth brings a quality of caring respect to the interactions among students and teachers, teachers and staff, parents and teachers.

Problem-solving, patience and communication skills are the tools of choice for dealing with issues of learning and behavior management, creating a safe environment where students can be themselves and step outside of their comfort zones to grow as students and leaders.



Our 5th and 6th graders put together this presentation about the Quaker SPICES.
