What makes DESI a school for innovation?
STEM, Spanish, and Student Leadership are three focus areas that designate Dearington as an innovative school. From Kindergarten through second grade students focus on language and culture of Spanish-speaking countries. In third through fifth grades, students learn the basics of the Spanish language. Our STEM labs capture students in engaging instruction each week. Our Student Leadership program engages students to take active leadership roles. Students graduate from our FINS Up! program weekly as they work through a guidance lead curriculum. Students from all over the city have the opportunity to apply to attend DESI. This application period usually opens during the month of March for the following school year. FINS Up!
