My 4 1/2 year old son loves this school, his teachers and his classmates. There are so many things that I like about this school. Here are a few of them: I like that each child has an individual program so can work on their strong and weak areas at a pace that is right for them. The teachers take the time to make sure each child is doing well socially as well as in thier studies. I am happy that he can get individual attention because the classes are not overcrowded. It is a very caring atmosphere. I am impressed at how the older kids take an interest in being good role models for the young kids in the school.

My 8 year-old daughter has gone to Delphi Academy since she was 3 1/2 and we absolutely love it! She has been able to foster a love of learning right from the beginning with teachers who ensure her understanding on every part of the curriculum, not just to a passing standard, but a full understanding. We are so grateful to have such a fantastic school available to us! My 1 year-old is already enrolled to start the preschool as soon as he turns 2!

I have a child in middle school, about to enter high school and one in preschool at Delphi Academy. I conisder this school, the best I have ever seen. Both of my boys are flourishing there. They are both learning at astomically rates and are emmersed in a wide range of knowledge so they really get and understand for themsevles each thing they are studying. I have seen my older boy put different things he has learned at different times together for a really well rounded deep understanding of the subject. Both boys can not wait to get to school in the morning and love their friends and teachers. I highly recommend this school!

My children love attending Delphi. I know that the education they are receiving is excellent and that they will actually know (not memorize) what they learn. My biggest goal for my children is for them to have the ability to pick up any book and learn a new subject. I feel Delphi is the school where they will achieve this.

My son LOVES his school. He has become a leader and friend to all ages there - The teachers too. He knows that he is in a safe environment at Delphi Academy. Every time I am at the school I observe the kids relationship towards each other and am amazed at how they encourage each other and are really friends that care about how the other is doing. I have never heard the kids say bad things about the other. I wish I had grown up with this type of school when I was a child!!

My daughter just started Delphi La and Loves it. She has made so many great friends and her teacher is so wonderful and happy! They have a science lab so now my daughter has a great interest in science. They have a wonderful theater and music program. It's a little far away from where we live but so worth the drive!!! :) We love it!

My daughter started in Delphi last year and the change in her is amazing. All of a sudden it seems her creative expression soared. She started playing piano, singing in the choir, playing drums in a band, took up volleyball and loves it! She has clearly shown an enormous increase in her interest and participation in Life! I highly recommend this school to any parent who wants to see their child reach their full potential.

Any parent who is considering home schooling their child should take a look at this school. At Delphi, your child will receive a great education and individual attention in addition to socialization skills. Delphi utilizes a 'standards' program where your child will not just memorize their studies, they will progress knowing the information and be able to apply it.

Our son has been a student at Delphi for 3 years. His younger brother will be starting this year. Delphi has helped him become a confident, educated, polite young man that has an incredible desire to learn. He loves to go to school. Rarely will he be ready to go home when we pick him up. We highly recommend this school to any parent looking for an exceptional education for their children. The teachers and staff are second to none and inspire their students. You will not be disappointed!

This school is exceptional in it's academics. A child who attends this school will learn how to learn, be able to study anything and be able to apply it to his or her own life in a positive way. The Basics are learned throughly and are built upon it a way that gives each student the ability to excel in life. This is proven when you look at the students who have graduated from Delphi. I've looked at many schools and have never found a school like Delphi Academy. It's the best!!!

Delphi is an amazing institution with small classes, motivated teachers and a strong ethics division that makes sure every kid is doing well and is well behaved. They have sports, arts, and many kinds of extra curricular activities. My daughter loves it there and I'd advise any parents looking for a private school in this area to please check it out. You won't be disappointed!

We have two boys that attend this school. There are so many wonderful things to say but to sum it up each child is treated as an individual with a curriculum tallored to the speed at which they can learn. This means they actully learn. Our boys are so much brighter and and happier than most children their ages. When I go to pick them up at the end of the day, they rarely want to leave the school, that really sums it up nicely.

All three of my children got to Delphi LA and they have been loving it! They switched to go there over a year ago and their progress is amazing! My six year old (he was about five when he started and he couldn't read anything yet as he had no desire to learn how and wouldn't pay attention at school in that area - although he was waaay ahead in math). Now he can read anything! My husband and I go out and we will continually be amazed as he will read signs with large words with ease and understand the words and their meaning! It is truely amazing! My 12 year old LOVES it as he is a very quick student and being able to work at a pace that suits him has allowed him to move ahead in his studies so he is never bored. Overall I am thrilled!

My daughter started going to Delphi about a year ago. She was very behind in reading and hated doing it. She always seemed overwhelmed by reading and acted like it was torture for her. Now she tells me she has 3 books to read this week and it s no big deal . I also love the curriculum. The projects and the hands on exercises made me want to take some classes. I know that when she graduates she will be ready to go on to college even though she had some trouble in the past. My friend has a son who is advanced and he is also doing well here. He is encouraged to advance even more and is expecting to graduate early.

I have 2 kids in this school age 7 - twins. When I was at this age I was in grade 1. Both my kids are at the reading level of grade 3 and 4. Amazing how they are in an environment that brings out their self-confidence and raises their aptitude level. They love to learn and look forward to going to school everyday. It is a safe environment to grow, learn and develop.

My 6 year old son goes to school at Delphi LA. He loves it! He is reading at a second grade level, writes in cursive and excels in math. When I pick him up at the end of the day I always have to wait as he is not ready to leave yet. There is always 'just one more thing' he wants to do! He adores his teacher and his friends. The summer program here is REALLY fun. It's a great time for kids to try out the school and see how they like it.

We recently moved our teenage children to Delphi Academy and they are thriving! One does not have to worry about the normal peer pressure of drugs, gangs, sexual activity etc. The sole focus is education and as a prior student myself I have no doubt that they will retain what they learn, have the ability to apply it towards their goals.

My kids love Delphi LA! They can't wait to get there in the morning, and hate leaving after school. They are excited about the education they are recieving and know it is superior to any other school's that they have attended. But in addition to the great education they are recieving, my kids have really shown a huge improvement in their ability to take on responsibility, learned to be more ethical and trustworthy, want to get involved in their community and take pride in helping others! This is so much more than I ever expected. My only regret is that I didn't find the Delphi LA sooner and get my kids enrolled earlier!

I have two boys at Delphi Academy of Los Angeles, who have started a few months ago. Already, I see quite a change in them. They are happy, they are thriving, they are eager to get to school in the morning, they feel positively challanged and are all smiles when I pick them up! What more can a mother ask for her childre? If they are happy, I am happy! Really, a great school! Fantastic academics and fabulouse extra activities. I HIGHLY recommend this school for anyone seeking the best education for their child!

This school is more than just a school, its a preparation for life. I had my parents over this summer and invited them for graduation. They have never cried that much for any event. Just hearing these kids telling about their accomplishments and gratitude for getting such a valuable education was just mindblowing. With great confidence and shining eyes one after another convinced the audience that they knew exactly what they wanted for their future and that they would do great in life. I have two kids at Delphi Academy now and after this experience my parents are so pleased that we moved our kids to this fantastic school. My youngest son hated homework and was strugling before. Now he comes home smiling and even brag about how much he learned at school. There is nothing more awarding for a parent. I strongly recommend Delphi Academy.

We love Delphi Academy! The staff is dedicated to the children and truly cares about them doing well. Our son loves going to school everyday and is never in a hurry to leave at the end of the day. He has made great friendships and enjoys his interaction with the staff and both the younger and the older students. He is a very good reader and excellent at math. He is a year ahead in math and the Delphi program easily accommodates this. He is also happily learning leadership, responsibility and ethics. He participates in so many other things he loves too - Science Fair, sports, art, a wonderful music program and exciting field trips. I highly recommend this school!

I couldn't be happier. My kids both enjoy going to school. They're interested in learning, both read extremely well. They're challenged to learn, to work hard, to be responsible. They're shining at 6 & 7 years old.

I attended and graduated from this school. In my opinion, this is the best K-12 education out there. My experiences were enjoyable and enlightening. I was pushed to be an intelligent, strong leader and am proud of what I have become as a result of my education at Delphi Academy.

Check the curriculum, you may not like the pace. The applied scholastics way of teaching is invaluble for life. I like that they have a course on money & exchange.

My daughter graduated from this school. It was a wonderful school for her. She received one-on-one help any time she needed it and the teachers are very caring. Communication with parents is encouraged and they have several parent conferences a year, plus whenever the teacher or parent requests one. Very professional, but very caring. They use a study and teaching method that is being adopted by entire nations and it is just phenomenal. I am so glad that my daughter was able to experience this education.

Delphi is unique in their approach. The school is self-paced, allowing students that are proficient in a subject to progress quickly, while others that need the extra time to master a subject are allowed to take the time necessary to master the subject matter. The Delphi approach works best for students that are properly motivated. It is important that parents track their child s progress to make sure they are meeting the targets of the school. Delphi has an extensive reading list that allows students to select interesting books. Their program emphasizes reading, writing and math skills. Delphi is weak in technology training. Delphi has a very good enrichment program, offering choir and two drama programs per year. All High School students are required to participate in Varsity sports and all juniors & seniors must be active in student government. Our son thrived at Delphi from junior high through high school graduation.
