Here’s what our participants of Future Doctors Program have got to say:

“Since I am just starting high school, the information we learned will benefit my upcoming science classes, like genetics and organic chemistry. I can now use the new knowledge I learned from my instructors about applying to universities, doing extracurricular courses, and being myself and working hard through my high school years to become successful. If I had to summarise the experience in one word, it would be ‘Informative.” – Hanna Noori, United States of America“The Future Doctors Program is a unique program that helped me choose my career path in Medicine, and also to develop research skills as a group using different sources of information, and to be able to filter what’s important. Being freshmen at Harvard, the teachers had a lot of energy and kept me engaged along with the sessions. If I had to describe my experience in one word, it would be ‘Eye-Opening.” –  Luisa Miles, Uruguay

Student Led Conferences Next Week!

Greetings Designers and Design Families,

We are getting ready for Student Led Conferences (aka: SLCs) next week! SLCs are an important time when parents and teachers come together for a meeting led by the student. It is a time to highlight a student’s strengths and hard work, to encourage students to set new goals, and to ask guiding questions so students can take ownership of their learning.

Every student and parent is expected to participate in leading an SLC this semester. SLCs will happen in-person and on campus unless a Zoom meeting is requested. See below for SLC schedules and details.

Week 25 Preview

Greetings Designers and Design Families,

This week, for our campus highlight, we are celebrating the incredible mural work done by our designers that is currently featured in the center atrium. A new semi-permanent installation in the atrium is a credit to our Ethnic Studies class. The murals were hand painted by our DVD Seniors and presented for their POLs last semester, and represent varied and diverse stories of cultural representation and finding joy in overcoming oppression. Our current installation in the glass display case was produced by our Black Student Union in commemoration of Black History Month. We are so proud of our DVD artists and achieving such beautiful, meaningful artwork.
