DZ Beliefs

  1. Deep learning, with practice, leads to mastery and innovation
  2. Teach kids to value what they can learn, before we teach them how to learn
  3. Informed curriculum decision-making with holistic data can better support students’ learning (than test scores alone)
  4. Failing forward is instrumental to future successes.
  5. Collaboration is the key to more impactful improvements and outcomes
