The teachers and staff at DMC pour into our children as developing individuals. The Christ-centered focus has impacted their worldview, the way they see themselves, their decisions in high school, and now, the critical decisions they are making as adults. As our children launch into adulthood, it's becoming more obvious that their time at DMC is having a life-long impact.

We had always planned for our children to attend a Christian school. When we relocated to the Des Moines area, we were looking for a school that would provide a faith-based education, a strong academic program and a place that could be a 'home-away-from-home' for our children. DMC turned out to be just that.
