DCPA has gone through alot of changes since the dismissal of Ms. Robertson but has made great strides in their leadership, academic programs & teachers. Ms. Dennis is a strong leader. She cares about the scholars, teachers & DCPA. She is backed by strong a supporting staff . Despite those that are against the schools success. I believe it will continue on to be a very successful school for its current scholars and future scholars. They have my support 100%. LETS GO DCPA!
not the best, but not the worst. i think majority of the parents that send their children to DCPA think the word "charter" entill some magical educational environment, this isnt the case here. DCPA underwent a lot of administrative changes when the founding principal Nita was discharged. since they havent been able to get it together. lots of changes and none for the better. once a FIRM CONSISTENT leader gets in place the school has great potential. my child went there for 2 years. she did learn and excel but in addition to there standards, i work with her at home to reinforce learning. u\she now attends public and is excelling there as well. there isnt any administravtive changes and the communication with the public school is phenomenal! there is no magic school-learning starts at home.
This is one of the worst charter school in Delaware. This is my oldest daughters third year here and I am taking her and my twins out today!!! It was good when Ms. Robertson was there she was a thorough principal but when they kick her out and fired her right in the beginning of the school year last year everything went downhill. Mr. Johnson is the most disrespectful principal I have ever met. He is not professional and talks down to students, staff and parents in front of people. He is totally unorganized and most of the teachers do not care . Anytime you walk into one of the classrooms it is a sure bet that you will see kids running around and total chaos. To get this school to give you feedback on anything is almost impossible...............It is sad because this school started off so well. I am hoping that they either shut this school down or get almost all new faculty including the principal. There are children bullying, using abusive language totally untamed. It is so sad. Please do not trust the test scores on how good the school is because it is simply NOT. I BEG any parent not to send their child there.
