District of Columbia International School (DCI) is a public charter school serving nearly 1,500 racially and economically diverse students in grades 6-12 from across the District of Columbia. We aim to provide our students with a world-class education that empowers them to follow their passions and change the world. DCI’s education centers on an International Baccalaureate curriculum, advanced language learning in Chinese, Spanish, and French, and a culture focused on student agency supported by 1:1 technology.
Our school is grounded in the following essential characteristics, which shape the DCI
experience for our faculty, students, and families:
-Culturally Competent: We expect our community to reflect and celebrate the diversity of our students and staff.
-Ownership: Community members are owners and don’t sacrifice long-term value for short-term results.
-Insist on the Highest Standards: Our staff is continually raising the bar and driving their teams to deliver high-quality education.
-Doing the Most: We are committed to giving students the tools they need to succeed in anything they choose for life after high school.
-Disagree and Commit: We are obligated to respectfully challenge decisions even when doing so is uncomfortable or exhausting.
-Servant Leadership: We start the decision-making process with the community, student, and staff needs, and work backward.
-Accountability: Community members are expected to provide and uphold honest, constructive feedback with each other through hard conversations.
