DVS Alumni Connection

This fantastic website, created and curated by our own calculus teacher Ms. Kondo, includes data and advice from DVS alumni at all of the universities and colleges they have attended. I encourage you to check it out! http://tinyurl.com/dvsalumniconnection

This is a great opportunity to sit down with your student and ask them what colleges they are thinking of attending, and look at what our alumni that currently attend there have to say about it! (Bonus points: plan a winter break college visit together!)
