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...
