Mr. McBride thank you so much for teaching all my children who have gone through Destiny. I have my youngest there this year in your class and he has enjoyed your class. You are very dedicated thank you.

school is tremendous...staff is willing to help and go out of their way to get a child to achieve their goals. They prepare each student to be ready for the AIMS testing. which today is something that each child had to pass. great Reading and math tutoring program.

I love how they work with both of my boys. Their after school tutoring and their Friday tutoring. And teachers will take time out to do one on one tutoring from time to time. Scores for AIMS have been awesome. So that in itself shows the school is teaching the curriculum that is recommended by the State. The staff from administration down to the bus drivers and custodian are always nice and considerate to our kids.

I love the school and teachers. I do think that parents are not always informed about their children's behavior issues. Sixth and seventh grade teachers were both excellent for my son's education career. Some unconventional methods and ideas where present. I myself found this to be inviting. If you are a very conventional parent you may find it hard to adjust to some of the methods. Also some teachers have multiple piercings. If you can't get past that then you may want to aviod this school.

Destiny has an enceptional staff that works hard to make my children feel welcome and safe. The teachers are dedicated and make the learning fun. My children enjoy school and feel good about themselves... not characteristics of their former learning experiences. Thank you Destiny you are an asset to our community.

This is a great school. The staff is committed to giving the students the best education possible. Destiny also has the best test scores in the area.

I am so pleased with the staff and quality of this school. My children are shown individualized attention, get to go on lots of field trips and overall are getting a great educational experience.

I would just like to say what a great school Destiny is. My two children have been attending for the past two years and have each had great teachers that have taught them so much throught the school year. I would also like to say that the office staff is always such a help and I know if I have concerns that I will be listened to. The Title 5, I believe, has been such a success for my 1st grader. My 5th grader has learned the value of money and the value of leadership through her class. I commend their teachers, past and present, for their work with my children. My children would much rather come to Destiny than go to the local public school and I agree with them.

i love this school and i think some people are mean at my school but i usually take care of it. or if you tell at teacher or the principal , hten they will take care of it. TRUST ME THEY WILL TAKE CARE OF IT.at other public school's i wasn't doing so good but this school is much funner and better than any other school ive ever been to.

I enrolled my kids in Destiny because I was told that it was much more structured and safer than the local public schools. I have no problems with the EDUCATION that my children receive at Destiny. What I DO have a problem with is the constant bullying they receive from other students with almost nothing done by the principal or teachers. I, as well as my children, have gone to the principal and teachers for help with the problem and nothing happens. The offending child is placed in a sort of in school suspension and once they return to the regular population the abuse continues. I fear for my childs safety! If you are a concerned and contientious parent such as myself please reconsider before enrolling your child in this school if you truly want them to have a safe and healthy learning environment.
