This beautiful, caring school has made a world of difference in my granddaughters life. The instructors make school fun and learning a challenge. They also teach kindness and understanding. The small classes give the teachers a chance to know each child. It is a wonderful educational experience for all who are lucky enough to go there.
DA has been a gift to our son who has ADD and has a very unique learning profile. He had a wonderful middle school experience. He stepped away for the first semester of 9th grade, but wanted to go back to DA, where he felt smart and capable, after two months. I have found the teachers to be very good and dedicated to the success of each student. It's such a gift to have a teacher actually know your child and his abilities and how to motivate him to do his best.
We have tried others, but came back to Denver Academy. This is a great school for students who have learning differences or need more time to process information. The school provides many opportunities to excel. My son is not coddled at DA, he is expected to work to his potential and articulate his difficulties so the teachers can help him help himself. 5 star in my opinion.
Denver Academy may work for some students who learn differently but it does not work for all. My child has ADD, struggles in public school and is fairly smart. My child struggles because of learning differences compounded by ADD. DA was unable to teach my child. They were unable to provide an environment where my child felt safe and accepted. Most of the teachers did not understand nor have the patience and maybe the interest to work with my child. Noneof the teachers we had had a background or education in working with students who have ADD and learn differently. Also most did not have a degree in the subject they taught. Which was really surprising. We were disappoiinted with our experience at Denver Academy. The curriculum seemed too easy and our child did not excel.
Denver Academy is an amazing private school for students with learning differences or students who just learn better with more one-on-one attention. Class sizes are generally around 13 students with 1 teacher and generally 1 teaching assistant. Teachers address all learning styles so that all types of learners are able to succeed in this environment.
