All of my son's teachers have just been wonderful. My son has loved each and every one. He is finishing the fourth grade and he is doing great. My one major complaint is parking, and trying to drop off and pick up your kids. It is just ridiculous, though they are trying to improve in that area!

THIS SCHOOL IS HORRIBLE! If you have a child in special ed. this is not the school for your child. We have 2 students within the family that attend this school and they both have been in physical altercations and was not handled correctly. This school is very rough and should NOT have special ed due to staffing and no zero tolerence on bullying and physical abuse

DVES is a wonderful school. This is my first experience as a parent with the public school system and having soley a private school background as a student, I was positively surprised. The parent-teacher-administrator communication is exceptional!!! The level of academics my child was exposed to surpassed my expectations and the care and dedication her teacher placed amongst all the students is admirably. I spent many hours as a parent volunteer within the classroom and experienced first hand the growth from August to June for the vast majority of the students. Excited for the new school year to commence and a new chapter in my child's learning within the DVES community!

The school places to much importance on 'teaching the test'. Most of the Teachers seem to be genuinely decent people. Many of the 'involved' parents are very clique-ish, and tend to exclude rather than include parents not in the 'in' crowd.

My oldest son started here two years ago and at that time I thought it was a great school... but over the last year or so I have noticed a lot more behavior issues, and a decrease in parent support.It is very sad to see a district fall so fast. I used to feel very comfortable when I would drop my children off, but now my husband & I are considering moving over the summer to a safer/better school district.

The educational program is adequate. However, like most schools in this district, the focus is on teaching the standardized tests. Students that are above average but not

My oldest grandson went there 3 years and he started the first year it opened when he was in 3rd grade, now his brothers go there and are in the 3rd grade and have been going there since they started school. We are very pleased with the teachers. Although the 4th & 5th grade classes are over crowded (which of course is not the schools fault)There is a lot of parent involvement. Mr. Mori and his staff are very friendly and get involved with the students.

Greaqt School! Great Teachers. My son and daughter went to this school for two years and they did very well. Mr Mori, the principal is a very hands on Administrator. You can often see him early in the morning and afternoon helping with drop off and pick ups. The teachers are great! Miss Zannassi and Mr Purcel are Great!

Overall the school is a very friendly environment. Tremendous effort by the faculty and parents, help preserve that environment. Most of the teachers are true educators and display a genuine interest in educating our children. There is an opportunity to imprve the ethnic diversity of the faculty as it doesn't appear to be representative of the student population.

My kids were there for only 3 months since we moved to the city at the end of the school year. However, they both enjoyed their teachers very much. In my opinion the people the teachers and office staff are great.
