DeKalb County School District (DCSD) values a strong parent-school partnership and invites you to discover more about what your child will learn. DeKalb’s curriculum for grades K-12 is aligned to the state-adopted Georgia Standards of Excellence in language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. In addition to core studies, students are offered a variety of learning experiences to develop the whole child.

The District prepares students for college and careers through a laser focus on rigorous, relevant classroom instruction related to each child’s needs. The curriculum was developed by our teachers for our students and is aligned with the school district’s mission to ensure student success, leading to higher education, work, and lifelong learning.
