DPS offers choice for families interested in a variety of instructional approaches, ensures the safety of every child, and focuses on high student achievement to fully prepare your child for success in life.

DPS has our own Kindergarten mascot – Dottie the Mouse! Dottie is warm and fuzzy, just like our Kindergarten classrooms! Look for Dottie at our special Kindergarten events. Thank you for choosing DPS for your Kindergartner. We look forward to many years of learning together.
