The purpose of this handbook is to publicize the SDS philosophy, policies, and procedures to ensure that all members of our community work together.  There are many important reasons why implementation is crucial  and understanding of  East  Handbook  for the welfare of our school. 

First of all we are special, because we have a bilingual program where a multi-cultural environment is presented.  By having members of the community from different cultures and with different experiences, the educational experience is enriched, only when there is clarity of objectives. 

Our history

The Saint David School was born from the idea of developing a different educational project that would provide the Dominican community with the opportunity to study in a bilingual program that would forge their academic knowledge in both Spanish and English .  

   The hard teamwork & collaboration of
