Inspiring Stories from CDS

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

The National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) recently launched the NAIS Inspiration Lab, a site designed to share stories from independent school classrooms and campuses around the country. Thanks to our dedicated faculty, we’re sharing some of our stories as well! Check out the links below and be sure to “like” our stories. This is a great opportunity to see the amazing education that our children experience here every day!
