DHS Homeschool started in 2013 after 6 years of Public Schooling (oldest son K-8th | oldest daughter K-5th | daughter K | son homeschooled only),
and 3 years of online school. (Connections Academy)
Bringing our children/students home was the best decision we have ever made!
In our Homeschool; we have implemented Textbooks for each grade level and a school website where assignments and progress are easily tracked and posted.
To learn how you can set up the same program for your children, please leave your contact information for a personal training session.
