This school creates a caring community of respect and tolerance. By using positive discipline positive critism with the kids to encourage them to grow by being aware of their own actions and decisions

This school cares about my son success. They build family care values. They made my son raise his self esteem and raise his grades. They build an environment of success in academics to build the path for University. But also they support my son to build the path of success for the life. Highly recommended school. It is an assertive choice ir you are a family value parent and you are looking for your children success without ill them on the way by using positive discipline and positive rol models. Starting from the principal all the staff are in the same page.

This Charter School care about your children. It is amazing how the support of this school brought my son from a Private School where the bully and lack of support from the teachers environment , where my son's self esteem was low. To this school. The support from teachers administrative staff principal counselors. This school cares about my son to success in his academics and put to my son to the path to University. But also they care about his success in the life. The parents ara involve too. The school cares about the parents too. This school is a family care value school. I highly recommend this school.

Moved my kids here from the mess at Adelante. What a difference! Proactive, caring teachers and staff, they're young, energetic and motivating. You can look up assignments and grade online. No one here harasses you to run to Target to blow your entire paycheck on the ridiculously long list of school supplies (which is against the law, DCP will actually give YOU the supplies!), pressure your kid to help with diabetes-provoking candy "fundraisers," or force your kid to worship at the Church of Common Core. Still have yet to see a gossiping hen! Serious, college-bound folks here. Best decision EVER.

Not the best teachers. Not very organized. Does not give what promises. Each year gets worse. My child has been 6-8 . Didn't finish 8th grade because of how bad. No honesty. And worst of all judges each student. Some children don't feel welcome. Don't be tricked...
