Academics

Students at the City of Dharma Realm Instilling Goodness Elementary School & Developing Virtue Secondary School (CDR IGDVS) have the opportunity to learn Buddhism in an authentic monastic environment allowing them to experience, incorporate, and practice Buddhist principles. A unique curriculum including Buddhist studies, Meditation, Virtue studies, and Chinese language and culture is the basis of our program. Incorporating both eastern and western culture, our school and curriculum is distinct from most schools in the US. Instructions will be bilingual in English and Chinese. Students are strongly encouraged to participate in a variety of extracurricular activities, such as public speech, community service, field trips, and intercampus interactions. We challenge our students to dedicate themselves to academic excellence, develop moral virtues, and foster spiritual growth. Students will be prepared for academic and professional success.
