It is one of the best and leading Dual Language Schools in the area. The faculty and staff is dedicated to teaching and caring for the children.

It is a dual language immersion Spanish language school with dedicated and innovative teachers who make learning both challenging and fun. Teachers and parents are committed in helping their children become the future ambassadors of the world.

Diloreto was a great beginning for my child who is now in high school. My nephew also attends Diloreto and the magnitude of education provided is tremendous!

Posted August 25, 2008

I have been a parent of children that have attended DiLoreto since 1999. I have to say I am really disappointed in the direction the school is taking. Having a new smaller learning community in a district that has already been failing is not the way to improve test scores. I hope to et my children out of DiLoreto before it fails them further.

I used to go to this school. It was amazing and everyone was so nice to me! I loved it there!!
—Submitted by a student


Posted November 26, 2006

My daughter and I moved from New York February 2005. Due to all the changes going on all at once, I was a nervous wreck in regards to having my daughter attend a new school. She has been attending Diloreto for one year and 4 months and I must say, I have made a great choice in having my daughter surrounded with such wonderful teachers and staff. It was made things much easier to handle. I normally dont contribute to the 'parent statements' portions but I know, school feedback helped me choose a school for my kid. I hope it can help the next parent seeking the same information.
