A Home Away From Home

The Dalat boarding community is a home away from home for DIS students from international or local families who want their students to grow in independence. Living in the dorms is a great way to make new friends and learn life skills while living in a supportive and encouraging environment.

Dorm Life!

We create a home-like atmosphere in each dorm to help students feel comfortable, secure and well cared for.
