The Deep Creek Middle School (DCMS) is an independent school for Bahamian students in grades seven through nine located on the southern end of the island of Eleuthera. DCMS offers an experiential approach to the Bahamian curriculum. It is fully endorsed and recognized by the Bahamian Ministry of Education. In 2013, DCMS enrolled 45 students from 10 Eleutheran settlements.

DCMS was founded in September 2001 with the goal of increasing access to educational resources for people of South Eleuthera. DCMS receives funding from Cape Eleuthera Foundation, a non-profit organization, whose mission is to provide place-based education, scientific research, and community leadership in order to create a more livable future on Eleuthera and throughout the world. DCMS works closely with The Island School and the Cape Eleuthera Institute to offer students and staff a unique experience that connects them more intimately with their environment and on-going efforts for sustainable development and environmental stewardship in South Eleuthera.

“At DCMS, I have learned that manners can take you through the world and that your attitude becomes your altitude.” -Giltavia Goodman, DCMS student
