The Ideal School

As I sat in the studio during Core Academic Skills, I couldn’t help listening to one of our learners as he read his writing aloud to his peers during an online class. The topic was:

What Would Be Your Perfect School?

With his permission, I will share some main points from the writing of this learner in our Elementary Studio. In his perfect school, he would:

· Spend time in nature

· Work at his own pace

· Experience a lot of hands-on learning

· Learn about topics he wants to learn about

· Have everyday access to equipment for a variety of sports

· Have a class pet

As he read his essay, I couldn’t help but think about the past and present of DCLC. It made me envision what is to come. I can’t wait to see what is in store for the future of DCLC!

I can't help but wonder how I would have felt about going to a school like this. Of course there is no "perfect" school out there and DCLC is not a utopia, but without a doubt, getting up in the morning would have been a lot easier! If the ideas mentioned above sound like aspects of an ideal school to you, Like us on Facebook at Be sure to not miss an update about our next Open House or information about the latest happenings.
