    Welcome to Dos Caminos! In order to place your child in the best environment to meet their learning needs for the upcoming 2022-23 school year, we will hold a Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten Prescreening Assessment with your child on Monday, June 13, 2022. Our Pre-Screening assessment includes foundational academic skills such as counting, shapes, numbers, letters, and writing their name. Some children may be confident in some of these skills and others may not be just yet. We will also have resources for you to work on over the summer to prepare your child for a great start to their schooling. Click here for full letter, sign-up, and timelines

  • Dos Caminos School

    Dos Caminos School provides a dynamic student-centered environment with an emphasis on Career and College readiness. DCS students are explicitly taught executive functioning skills of organization, goal setting, and self-monitoring steps to success. These are important tools in displaying our DCS Determination.

    Building on our storied traditions, the DCS team has worked to create school-wide initiatives that address the whole child and include social emotional learning, inclusion, character building, academic language and development. Our students are artists, athletes, scholars, and environmental stewards.

    Our PTA has been instrumental in supporting expanded enrichment for students and volunteerism. Families will find partners in our scholarly ambitions and opportunities to assist in these endeavors.
