We have had a great experience with this school. One of the biggest surprise for me was how involve the principal is. She is always participating like one of us the the events, also is very approchable to parents. Parents and teachers also work together, its a friendly environment. I feel at home. My son started Kindergarten last year and I was so scared leaving him all day in a new place and community I wasn't familiar with. Everything came to place pretty fast. Everyone was helpful and guided us. I love this school and look forward to more years to come.

I will have two of my three children at Denham Oaks this year. We are very pleased with this school. The administration is fantastic- great communication with parents. The teachers are wonderful- nurturing & challenging at the same time. There are plenty of social events to get involved in throughout the year. The principal, Mrs. Powers, seems to really have her heart in this school. She's in the car line most days, at every social event, and even answered the phone when I called the school this morning! I have recommended this school to several friends & acquaintances and will continue to do so. I am excited to say that I WILL have all three of my children attending Denham Oaks next year! Keep it up Denham Oaks!!

I am truly pleased with Denham Oaks. My daughter just completed her first year there. Her teacher, the principal and every staff member I've encountered takes interest in your child's success and well being. I was hoping my daughter would be challenged enough, but still praised for her achievements and that's exactly what we got.

I have two children enrolled at Denham Oaks, a 5th grader and a kindergartner. I am also a teacher in a secondary level public school. Our whole family loves DOES! The school zones were a major consideration when we bought our home. My husband and I were determined that our children would be able to attend here. I don't know of any other school that tries so hard to involve parents. My children's assignments can be rigorous, but the joy of learning is never stifled. Also, the students have more opportunities for enrichment than I see at other schools. The fine arts are alive and well, not a victim of budget cuts like you see elsewhere. Denham Oaks is a great place for children to learn and grow!

I was shocked to see that someone has insulted Mrs. Powers - how inappropraite...My son began in kindergarten and now is entering his final year at Denham Oaks. Mrs. Powers is one of the reasons this school is so great. What principal do you see on the front lines every day - her office door is always open and she takes the time for any concern with students, staff, or parents. I proudly sing the praises of this school and know it well.

The ethnicity breakdown is quite accurate and quite telling as I was very disappointed and disturbed by the lack of African-American activities - in particular MLK Day. I quietly inquired and during the entire month of February (Black History Month) I did not see any interactive or participatory activities - not one poster, not any notice of anything. Can anyone explain why? I find it hard to believe that is is simply an oversight.....

My daughter just started kindergarten, and Denham Oaks had a Kindergarten Camp for a half day a couple of weeks before the first day of school. My daughter felt very confident in going to this school and has really enjoyed going to school each day as she knew what to expect and had a chance to meet the other kindergarten students and teachers. I think this program is awesome!!
