Deep Roots is an actively anti-racist and inclusive organization. We serve all students, support all families, and advocate for our communities. Our learners and team will discover their purpose, potential and actively work to dismantle barriers within and beyond our walls.

We have three core values.

  1. Practice
  2. Service
  3. Purpose

Practice because each and every individual in our school community, from student to leadership, will engage in deliberate practice, and value this as the path to excellence.

Service because our service-learning model will be discipline based; it will require students to have a presence in the community, and reflect on their experiences regularly.

Purpose because we want to empower our students to uncover their unique gifts and talents, and apply them towards an outward purpose about which they are passionate.

The focus of our DRCS community is college preparatory, preparing students for success at a selective institution. The driving force in our community is world class teaching in every classroom. We will be utilizing the extended school day and extended school year.
