What it is

The DSHK Lifelong Learner series is a parent education program for current and prospective Dalton families.  The series is facilitated by our DSHK faculty and gives parents a keen insight into what distinguishes DSHK from other primary schools.  The series meets throughout the year and focuses on analyzing, evaluating, and studying the Dalton plan, child-centered instruction, dual language programming, and our Chinese cultural framework through hands-on learning experiences. Attendees will have the opportunity to experience DSHK teaching and learning as learners themselves, while also observing classroom video and artifacts.

DSHK Overview

“The Dalton Plan is not a curriculum, it is a scheme of educational reorganization which reconciles the twin activities of teaching and learning. When intelligently applied it creates conditions which enable the teacher to teach and the learner to learn.”
