I think DPES is a great school because if you do something wrong, DP staff does not get mad at you,they actually encourage to make mistakes so you can improve them and at this school when you walk into the Panther Zone you feel very welcome!
Our son first began attending Del Prado in 2013 and he loves it ever since. The teachers and administrative personnel have been very accommodating, permanently engaged, and open to dialogue. I recommend this school to all parents!
Del prado is run by the PTA. They are all over the place and seem like they have more power than the teachers or administration. They are constantly asking for more money but so much is wasted with over printing. My child generally has 5-6 unnecessary flyers every day and the teacher reprints reminders for everything instead of utilizing the class website with email notifications that was set up. The teachers and school are far more interested in keeping up appearance with cutesy Pinterest projects than a thorough education. Not a bad school but feels focused on the wrong things.
We have been part of the Del Prado family for 3 years now and have had the greatest experience. I am a former teacher, and I know how difficult it can be to run a safe and effective school. This school goes above and beyond for the students. Parent involvement is a huge aspect of the success of a school, and you can always count on the parents of Del Prado to help make the year a great one. The staff responds to our concerns immediately, and the principal is a great motivator. This is a school where the higher level students actually encourage the lower level ones. The school continually gets top scores. Do not worry about sending your children to Del Prado!
Office staff is rude, uncaring and passes the buck. My husband and I always get the run-around. They will never go out of their way to help you. Typical failed system. No one thinks outside the box, no one problem solves. Very disappointed.
