At CDS, our teachers know most of the students (not just their own), as well as their siblings, parents, and grandparents. How many schools can say that? My children love their teachers and feel loved in return. That matters a lot to us. And that's what distinguishes our school: We not only educate students, we raise them.

- Stu Kaplan, CDS Parent and Immediate Past President
