Grit is about perseverance and about knowing what you want and being fully motivated to get it. Every year at DCMS we provide orientation information to our students and parents about our school culture. This year we made an addition to the orientation to include overcoming obstacles and about finding and developing the range of personal skills and attitudes needed for your ultimate success.
