At Dunwoody Christian School, your child will experience a loving and encouraging school community. Because our class sizes are small, our teachers will know your child personally, and be able to provide him or her with a high degree of individual attention.
We offer our students a safe and exceptional classroom experience that is rigorous and encouraging, challenging and attuned. We believe the process of learning and discovery should be exciting and fun. At DCS, we cultivate a robust and engaging curriculum that is student led.
Because we are a covenantal school, your child, their teachers, and their peers will all share a common commitment to Christian values and behavior. This gives our school the unique ability to create a harmonious and mutually-encouraging class atmosphere based on Christ’s love and Christian principles.
Our goal is to establish Christ-like character in your child. Therefore, all lessons are taught from a biblical world-view. Our weekly chapel service provides our students a meaningful opportunity for worship and personal interaction with God.
Although spiritual and academic growth are our highest priorities at DCS, we also strive to provide social and emotional development in a Christ centered environment. Research clearly indicates that children need play and physical activity to increase cognitive maturation. Accordingly, our students have recess and classroom brain breaks each day. They also attend PE twice a week.
Our students are required to wear school uniforms. School uniforms have proven to limit distractions while enhancing learning and task-oriented focus. Our school utilizes a dedicated Lands' End DCS storefront and we have created a uniform guideline to help parents easily identify our acceptable uniform items.

Of course, your child’s safety is our highest priority. We rigorously enforce policies and procedures which provide physical safety, and we will also strive to make our school free from any kind of prejudicial or unkind behavior that may result in distress for your child. We have video cameras in every classroom for student safety and parents' peace of mind. Parents are able to use their mobile devices to monitor their child’s classroom at any time.
