The Magic of UCDS

Upon entering the school, you’re greeted by playful colors and architecture that immediately invoke creativity and joy. But in order to truly feel the energy of UCDS, you need to step inside our classrooms.

Once you arrive, you’ll feel and hear the buzz of teacher voices actively coaching students through their next challenge. Kids will be moving around the room, talking about their work and sharing strategies with each other. UCDS students revel in the challenge of finding solutions to the difficult problems their teachers concoct.
