Downcounty Consortium (DCC)

Downcounty Consortium gồm năm trường cấp III và các trường cấp II và cấp I - Blair, Einstein, Kennedy, Northwood, và Wheaton. Mỗi trường cấp III DCC cung cấp chương trình giáo khoa đặc biệt phát họa để thu hút sự chú ý của học sinh, kết hợp các môn học khắt khe, tìm hiểu những hướng dẫn về nghề nghiệp, và mang thế giới thật sự thích hợp đến với chương trình giáo khoa của học sinh. Vào mỗi mùa thu, các học sinh lớp 8 sống trong vùng thuộc DCC sẽ tham gia trong tiến trình Choice của trường cấp III. Có nhiều cơ hội cho các phụ huynh và học sinh để học hỏi về tiến trình Choice và tham khảo những chương trình giáo khoa đặc biệt của DCC.
