We are so happy we found this school, the staff is caring, patient, and well qualified. Our son struggled for years in a public school setting which led to frustration for the entire family. Now he looks forward to school and is learning so much more than we even expected! They offer a wide variety of options from providing curriculum for home schooling to attending private school full time.

Desiderata has allowed our 11year old son the opportunity to utilize the nontraditional learning environment. Our son has special needs and focusing issues that had caused him to fall behind in the public school system. Since attending Desiderata he is already ahead of where he was at this time last year in public schools and is thoroughly enjoying his class. Not everyone learns the same; however public schools don't have the luxury to allow children the choice of how they would learn best. Our only regret is that we didn't enroll our son in this school when he was 6 years old. The staff at Desiderata truly cares about the students and work with them using any tool available to ensure the highest quality of learning is achieved. Most of the students at Desiderata graduate with their high school diploma well before what would be their senior year in public schools. All students at Desiderata also enjoy the benefit of being able to return to the school for help with their college classes. We have already, and will continue to recommend Desiderata to anyone looking for an alternative to the strained public school system.

I can t even begin to state how pleased we are with Desiderata school in Longmont, CO. Our son has been attending this school for a year now and his progress is far and above our expectations. Due to the low student/teacher ratio, Desiderata is able to provide a stress free, personal, and very interactive learning environment. All of the students become very close no matter their age. The older students are always very eager to help the younger students excel in their studies. At this school students are allowed, and encouraged, to express themselves which promotes a positive learning environment. The amazing Staff at Desiderata has discovered that incorporating a child s passion into their lesson plan aids in a very successful education. I will forever be grateful to this school for the opportunity they ve provided our son.

Both of our children were failing in the public school system. Our son was failing all of his classes and was threatening to quit high school. Our daughter was overwhelmed with the high school experience and hated going. Then we heard of Desiderata School. The one-on-one help they received from their teachers was what they needed. They were able to work at their own speed, which meant that they were able graduate ahead of time. I know that our decision to send them to Desiderata was the best thing we could have done. They both went on to college and now have very good careers.

What a wonderful, engaging group of teachers and administrators! They take the time to find what your student needs and provide the instruction for maximum success. Personal and effective.

Because it took a student who was failing every class at a local public high school and turned her into an 'A' student who enjoys going to school.
