Our Core Values

Children thrive in a school community with shared values.
At FCDS, we are focusing on five core values that we believe are personal qualities that build a foundation for success in life and work. These core values are embedded throughout the curriculum as a daily focus for both students and faculty.

Compassion – We try to understand others’ experiences and emotions with a desire to help.

Curiosity We continuously ask questions with a strong desire to learn and know more.
Integrity – We do what is right even if it is difficult and no one is looking.
Respect – We value others and treat them accordingly.
Responsibility – We act honorably and hold ourselves accountable for our words and actions.
As a school community, we are pursuing compassion, curiosity, integrity, respect, and responsibility because we believe character and academic excellence are the backbones of our school. We know that when our students leave our campus, they are going to make an impact that is lasting within our community and the world.
