I just love this school for my 7th grader! She has attended since 6th. The teachers are involved in the students' life and really care! This school is not a boundary school either. The students are selected from a lottery. So imagine how hard both the teachers and the students have to excel to make this a great school! Of course, the community location is a handy attribute. Fine arts at this school are great - my daughter loves band!
Don Estridge is a great school. We had one problem with the busing system but it was taken care of by the principal within one day. The teachers are very interactive with the parents. They also have a grading system that is available online. The parents have accress to thier students work, homework and grades for the week online. The parent can also email with the teacher and on the same day recevie a response. Its a great school!
School is generally good, but several teachers rely on project learning, which my child doesn't adapt to. The social studies project had nothing to do with the topics taught in 8th grade history.
This school is simply wonderful. Yes, the academics are certanly more challenging then the home school a student might attend(Don Estridge is a magnet school), but the teachers are the best I've seen. With the help of these wonderful teachers, my 8th grade daughter has received straight 'A's' for the first time. Now, it was not an easy grade, I assure you. There were loads of homework, complicated projects, and tests that you couldnt pass without studying, or so she told me. But the teachers were there for help before or after school or class, or via e-mail. My daughter loves this school, her new abilities to suceed in academics, and the fun-filled electives. This school is a great choice.
My son attended 6th grade at DEHTMS. He has loved it every step of the way. They pick him up all the way in Boynton and drop him off. The teachers are friendly and involved. Also they use EDLINE intensivey which allows us to keep track of his progress. Lastly they keep most of thier textbooks and homework online which is cool because it always there on thier internet to access.
