Principal's Message

Hello Maverick parents, guardians, and friends. CDS is a welcoming education setting for students who need something different. Our promise is to provide our students a unique, robust, and holistic educational experience. We offer a variety of courses including all core academic subjects. In addition, introductory courses in construction, horticulture, photography, videography, and culinary arts.

Our goal is to allow our students to experience a sense of success daily.

We offer a comprehensive Social Emotional Learning component, which allows our students opportunities to heal, rebuild, and grow. Our expectation is that our students will have opportunities to shift trajectories and reach their goals and aspirations in the near future and beyond.


Dr. Alfredo Ponce,
