Map of Dvorak Technology Acad Elementary School address.

I am a former student of Dvorak, I don't believe it's the staff that's failing the children, perhaps it's our children not willing to be taught. I graduated in the class of 1980, I am leading a successful life, therefore don't blame the teachers, it's up to us as parent's to make sure our kids are doing their school work as well as homework. Teachers can only do so much, so get off the backs of the staff, and take a look and see what you can do as a parent to help your child.

Since the leadership change, I have seen a marginal improvement overall, but the school still has a long way to go!

Dvorak is a fun school.They have a lot of afterschool programs that helps children academically.They have programs which help children have fun,learn more,and help them with homework.This school helps children keep their grades up because if you dont have good grades you cant be on fun programs such as hoop stars,double-dutch,pom-pom,cheerleading,choir,techno dell,martial arts,drumline, and a lot more fun programs.A lot of these programs at this school helps students with anger management,drugs,self-esteem,hiv,aids,and stds.One good program that helps students with those different topics are peer leadership and young heroes.Dvorak is a really great school and you have a lot of fun stuff to do there along with learning.

Dvorak is a great school for kids to learn the things they need to know to succeed. It would be an even better school if the administrators where a little more professional.

My son has been going to this school since he was 3yrs. of age and I have my issues with this schoo. My son is currently in 5th grade and is still having difficulty with his divison. It shows in his grades but they continue to send him to the next grade. No I would not like to see my child fail but they should at least offer him some type of help. When he started the school had a music class they got rid of music and replaced it with art and my son say this is a class they do nothing in. At one point the principle was forcing the kids to go to after school programs to keep funding. This is my sons last year at this school and I would advice other parents to take the same steps to remove their child.
