School Official Point of View

There is no better school in Yuma. We would say in all of Arizona it would be hard to find another DVA. The school staff emphasizes character and the administration follows through on expectations.

Supports LD students: no rating

DVA's special education department is hands down the best in Arizona. School leaders have been invited, by ADE to present their program to other special educators in the state. It's THAT good!!

Handles bullying effectively: no rating

DVA is a school of character and they do not tolerate bullying or acting out.

Leadership at DVA has an open door policy. Parents, teachers, students and staff are encouraged to seek them out when needed.

Teacher effectiveness: no rating

Teachers at DVA work harder than any teachers in the area. They are not only effective but they go above and beyond for their students.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree

This is Mrs KB's area. She deals with every discipline issue and if there is even a hint of bullying she nips it in the bud. DVA is a school of character and they do not tolerate bullying or acting out. For this my family is very grateful.

DVA's special education department is hands down the best in Arizona. Mrs Trudgeon and Mrs KB are extremely involved in all aspects of the special education students education. I even heard the two of them spoke at a state of Arizona conference on what they do every day. I can speak for all exceptional students parents when I say we love them.

Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a parent
Leadership at DVA is very good. Mrs Weigel is always welcoming, sweet, and caring. Mrs KB is constantly smiling, making jokes, solving problems and handling discipline. The two balance each other perfectly and are both very approachable. I would also have to say that Mrs Anita is a stand-out leader as well since she deals with all of us parents each day at the beginning and end of the day,


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

Teachers at DVA are great. My kids have had Mrs Young, Mrs Kimm, and Mrs Johnson. We have been very happy. We have also liked the PE teacher Mrs Tracy and the library teacher Mrs Smith. All teachers work together.

DVA is a great school. We just received progress reports and our daughter is doing great. We were worried about moving her to a new school and having her repeat the same grade but we now we made the right decision. She has learned more in the past month than she learned all last year. Thank you to administration for your involvement in her education. She is flourishing.
