I thought I was the only one who had to deal with the messy lottery process with selecting students but after reading the review, I see I'm not the first or the last. I experienced first-hand their inconsistencies and partiality in their lottery and re-enrollment practices. I believe that some kids are favored over others and their student selection process is not totally objective. They change methods to suit their needs and that is not putting the education of a student first.

This school is mediocre at best. The teachers are actually alright, but the administration is not. It seems they run good teachers away every year. The principles are arrogant and ignorant and they do not provide good support to the teachers. The board is weak and do not check the administration. Look deeply before sending your child here. Appearances can be deceiving. I am pulling my child.

D.A.T.E is an excellent school. After reading a few of the posts below, I was compelled to respond. The lunch program is an option that is presented to the parents in advance. The price is very reasonable for a catered lunch. I agree that the curriculum needs to be more challenging. However, in my 6 years as a D.A.T.E. parent, I notice that parents complain when the curriculum/teacher is more demanding and kids receive the grades that they earned instead of the inflated grades that we see in South Dekalb County as a whole. We need to stop making excuses for unruly kids. Kids need to understand that there is a time to play and there is a time to listen and learn. I The kids are taught to obey rules and if a child cannot or will not obey rules, then this a school choice, and a parent has the right to remove the child and place them in a school with less structure. The school is not perfect but the administrators work hand in hand with the parents to encourage growth. In South Dekalb, the students have taken over the schools. DATE has the correct approach. Let the teachers, administration, and parents run the schools. If DATE isn't for you...then you have other options.

This school is a joke. I entered my son in the lottery process with all paperwork completed. A week after the lottery was conducted I recieved an email stating that he was accepted. The very next morning I recieved an email stating that he was not accepted after all. My husband and I were confused and sent an email to the headmaster, admissions counseler, and elementary prinicpal. No reply. I finally called two days later to find out he was on the waiting list (from the clerk who refused to let me speak with the admissions counseler). Then he was called up from the waiting list. Since then it has been an awful experience. The front desk is quite rude and very unprofessional (putting it lightly). I emailed the admissions counseler and she did not email back. My husband and I are seriously having doubts about placing him in this school. I read the other reviews prior to applying to the lottery and still wanted to give the school a chance. Now, I know what they (the other reviewers) are talking about. When someone or something shows you who they are BELIEVE them. My child will not be attending this school because of it's messy behavior. I will take my chances elsewhere.

good school but stills needs work. i think that the school is run to much like a busness. think that they should let the kids have a little more freedom but at the same time they need *-teacher that the kids like. i do think that they need a better lunch program. and i am sick of my oldest getting bullied by the same kid. that kid need to be kicked out. but all in all it is a great school better then the public ones around here.

Teachers need to stick to basics instead of constant CRCT or any standardized test preparation. Also, school needs to talk to food vendor regarding reduced lunch grant. Furthermore, do not believe the hype that charter is better; it's just another trap to divide the tax dollar especially amongst minorities.

I was interested in visiting this school to obtain a visual of instructional methods and what D.A.T.E. could possibly offer to my son who is currently enrolled in a Montessori environment. As with other schools, I called the front office to schedule a prospective student/parent visit and was placed on hold. I was politely told that "We don't allow parents and students applying to this school to walk around and visit". Really?! Thank you D.A.T.E., I will now look elsewhere.


Posted September 24, 2013

This is our 5th year at D.A.T.E. We were honored to be accepted and have cherished the years here. I challenge any of the disgruntled and spiteful people who have written poor reviews on this lovely school to name a better school in the DeKalb County School System (particularly the south side). Overall, you will not find a school with a more caring staff, a culture that breeds leaders and high achievers, and a curriculum that keeps up with the educational trends and challenges students to give and do their best! What the school requires, that many may not want to comply with, is true committed parental involvement inside the school and at home. If you are looking for a school to raise your child for you and never expect you to contribute to YOUR child's success, then no, D.A.T.E. is not the school for you. If you seek a school to partner with you as you seek to educate and develop your child to prepare him/her for a promising future, then we welcome you to apply!

Honestly this school is terrible. The building was clearly an office building poorly transformed into a half school. The school claims to be the best alternative to public school but this is the worst because everyone is so bouji. The teachers feel like its the best thing in the world to work at a school where kids can not express themselves. Now there are alot of schools with uniform the average is just khaki and a polo and maybe dress shoes but here they take it over the top with a blazer and a tie dress shoes and an oxford. You may think its great now but its a hassle to keep a blazer clean 5 days throughout the week especially if your child is a slightly messy eater or someone who is a little rough on clothing.

DATE-The Good , the Bad, and the Questionable. I am a DATE parent that just finished 4 years involved with the school. And, I must say I have seen things change... good and bad. The Good: Dr. Wills-always found him caring, open, and wanting the success for all the students.The campus is also great with the updates. I enjoy the uniforms, and how hard the PTO/Board works (that cannot be easy). The Bad: Some of the teachers are in the wrong profession and can be lazy, aggressive, defensive, or passive. The staff turnover is high-which is unfortunate. Also, there are some parents that do their volunteer hours happily, but most do not. The Questionable: Why the CRCT testing results are always changed/update, etc to look make DATE scores look better is beyond me. All homework is always on computer (good in theory-not so much in practice). DATE can sometimes feel like a prison (every door locked all the time/silent lunch/ISS). Look. if you are an involved parent in your child's education you will be fine at DATE (or wherever your child attends). If not, you will have problems. Make sure your child's teachers/administrator know you by name/face. Could it be better? Yes. Will it? Doubt it.

D.A.T.E. is awesome! The staff is great about communicating with parents. My kids are always coming home talking about what they learned about the environment. Since we have been at D.A.T.E. our family has been very conscious about the products we use, making it a point to recycle, and educating our neighborhood about being environmentally friendly. I like how D.A.T.E. challenges my kids, requiring them to ask questions. If you are looking for a school where the staff is an extension of your family and truly cares about your child, challenges them academically, not only learns about the environment but participates in hands on activities and uses technology daily, then D.A.T.E. is where you want to send your child(ren). I love how administration greets the students and parents daily. They are great about listening and responding to emails. D.A.T.E. ROCKS!!!!!!

Administrators are 'clique-ish', 'gossipy,' and very poorly handle discipline. Discipline Administrator is a joke - and has no relevant experience. Everything is smoke and mirrors - done for looks. Technology is frequently not working (internet), and there are surprising (considering school title and goal) little computers, iPads, or what have you for the school (one class size worth for the entire school) If you support strong teachers who challenge your child and expect his or her best - this is NOT THE SCHOOL FOR YOU. If you like to wine and complain and not take responsibility for your role in your child's education, you've likely enstilled in your child the same lack of values and responsibility- so then THIS WOULD BE THE SCHOOL FOR YOU. Too much class time is interrupted by admin. for poor reasons...like marketing for a karate dojo, etc... This school has an extremely high turn-over rate among its staff - many of whom leave after just a year or two siting the reasons above. Faculty is exceedingly unhappy with how they are treated/spoken to, and taken advantage of by Administrators.

This school is a joke..very unprofessional. During the application process i was actually told that my son wouldnt be a good "fit" in the school because another parent doesnt feel comfortable with it.. (simply bec my son was her childrens half brother) smh . If this was indeed a true charter and lottery program...admissions would not be based on how individual parents feel. it was insulting, it was inclusive and totally inappropriate. To appease me, the principal then informed me that my son would still be apart of the lottery which i was not privy to. i was not informed that they rescheduled the lottery, I showed up at the original lottery date. needless to say, when calling to confront them, the registrar then stated that i was supposed to be on the email list and should have received an email. in any case...after calling and sending multiple emails i was then emailed stating that my son was 80 on the waitlist. this school is unprofessional! i would rather pay to send my son to a private school with white folk than attend this farce of a school

Teachers and Staff are arrogant and lax. They act as though they are doing you a favor to educate your child. Always asking for money for everything. If they put as much focus on education as they do collecting money for everything; the school would be great.

DATE is a very good school compared to most schools in my local area. My son has been a student at DATE for 4 years and he has excelled as a average A/ B student. Date is fortunate to have access to some of the amenities and acess other schools don't have. Such as the field trips, science labs, computer labs and after school activities, The staff and administration can be a bit much at times, even though they are being pushy to stay on-top of the rules and safety procedures, At times I feel like my child is locked in a school with government task force surrounding him. At one point in time it was difficult to get into the school just to volunteer or you had to make a appointment. This seems to be getting better. Lately I think my son is in brain OVERLOAD. They do teach the kids on the curriculum and a little more and I can see him in a brain burn out, he spends hours doing homework and studying and it seems like for him to be in the 4th grade he is under a lot of pressure and it is starting to worry me! But hey, some parents feel like their child is not getting enough work and that they need more homework, I don't see how that could be true when the work load is already heavy

I am a very involved parent at this school. Leadership and administration is very unconcerned and have bad attitudes.Very few good teachers.Many of the staff I feel should not even be working with children. Test retaken many times.Nothing challenging about this place! Children deserve much better.Older children seem to be bored. Children not well supervised. Nothing really high tech or environmental here, Everything over priced,not a problem for us,but for many it is hard. Very disappointed. Can't wait to find a more challenging program. I got fooled by the lottery process hype.Please do more and research staff and school. We are by no means slacker parents,only striving for a quality education for our child.

DATE is a lot of things, but a "GREAT" school it is not! The thing that attracted me was that it appeared to be a school that would provide a great education and an opportunity for engagement in extra-curricular activities that are not commonly found in the average elementary and middle school. To my dismay, these activities tended to take on higher priority than the academics, which are mediocre at best! If you want your child socialized, go to DATE. If you want your child educated, continue your search for a quality school. After 2 years, I still struggle with my child's curriculum not challenging her beyond the knowledge base she obtained at her former schools 3rd grade curriculum. And, the "gifted" program does not engage or challenge the children beyond the standard class work, if any work is assigned at all. The concept is great, the execution has failed our children and parents of the community who continue to search for quality education. DATE, if nothing else, is entertaining. Please be clear, I'm not disgruntled, just disappointed. And, like many other parents who have found themselves hoodwinked and bamboozled, my search continues because my child deserves better!!

Between my 3 children we have experienced Public, Private, and Charter education. I'm an not sure where the negative reviews are coming from but you are not going to do better in Dekalb county public than D.A.T.E. I am especially surprised at the reviews on the "mediocre" education. The test results speak from themselves. 90% of the 8th grade last year were accepted to all the better high schools in the area. This tells me that at least the High Schools view the students as being well prepared. As I hear the horror stories from my friend with their middle schoolers and then talk to my son, he tells me, "Dad, we just don't have those issues". But be warned - Your kids are expected to perform. No excuses. If getting to football practice is more important than completing your science project, this may not be the place for you and your child.

This will be my child's 4th and last year at D.A.T.E. I'm VERY PLEASED!!! Our children's test scores are within the top raking yearly.The academic program is challenging , But the well skilled teachers are trained and great at what they do. Yes, there has been things I didn't feel was handled right, but the principals and teachers were always ready and willing to workand talk with me. There are some teachers and staff that need to have a better attitude with the childern. You will find this at every school. This is when parents should be at the school talking to the principal making them awere of what is going on to fix it!. But the children are not being abused . The bottom line is perparing the kids for high school, college, and leaders of the community. D.A.T.E does that . Thank you D.A.T.E . I'm a happy parent, involved in my childs education and PROUD to say my child attends D.A.T.E.
