Your child’s transcripts and Geselle and WRAT placement test results will determine their grade level.
Daily recess is spent outdoors, except on days the teacher judges the weather to be unsatisfactory. Parents/guardians must ensure their child has the proper clothing to go outside in the current weather conditions.
We partner with approved, independent arts teachers to hold classes such as piano and trumpet on campus. Though not a requirement, students and their parents/guardians may decide if they would like to take advantage of any of these classes. Payments and expenses for these classes are not handled by DGAS and must be coordinated with each independent teacher.
