What says: A very well liked institution among parents and students alike who report high satisfaction ratings. The school did exceptionally well in the WSA School Survey, recording a high recommendation rating among parents from the school who took part.

What the School Says:

Our central focus is the experiences your child has in the classroom and beyond. We want to instill an enjoyment of learning that ensures our students are ready for the next steps, whatever, and wherever, they may be.

Our standards and expectations challenge students and develop a mindset that they can get better at whatever they do, whether this is academically, on the sports fields, in performing arts or simply participating in one of the many out-of-classroom experiences on offer to students throughout the year at DESC.

What the KHDA Says: Students at DESC demonstrated strong leadership, personal and social skills and enthusiasm and accept responsibility for their own learning and development, says the KHDA.

Across the board, the authority notes, student progress in almost all subjects is outstanding, and they make excellent contributions to the life of the school.
