D-E in the Garden

Beyond academic courses and Robotics and other STEM-oriented co-curricular activities, which typically take place indoors, opportunities for students to strengthen their role to support sustainability can often be found outdoors as well.  Through these endeavors, students are also encouraged to build their confidence in research and innovation skills.

School Life & Co-Curricular Highlights

The 2022-2023 school year thus far has seen dozens of D-E co-curricular programs both by and for our students in all three divisions, many of which have been also enjoyed by D-E faculty/staff, families, and friends.  We’ve experienced a refreshing return to pre-pandemic traditions, and at the same time there have been many new activities and events which have also taken place on-campus.
