DEPSA has an outstanding reading program. The have many after school activities for a variety of interests. Parents are involved. The school nurse is on top of health issues and concerns. A top notch education experience.
this school is really great i really love the teachers they really cared about you and your academin sucess i love it there
DEPSA is a family oriented school, my children love the environment! Generally, I have a hard time getting them to leave school. DEPSA is a challenging school and the students seem to be highly motivated and engaged. I'm proud to see African American's in a city like Detroit successfully manage an organization. Some key points are Male Leadership,Technology, Parent Involvement.
DEPSA has its good points and bad points. On the good side, they do have a caring and dedicated staff who care about the students. The work is challenging (often teaching @ 1 grade level above) and their reading program demands much from the students, as well as the parents. On the downside, the teacher turnover rate is deplorable and I find the quality of education declines each year. DEPSA is slowly slipping into something less than desireable. They can still turn it around, but they need to retain those quality teachers committed to teaching our kids.
This school needs to do a better job on relaying information to parents. I thought today was the first day back to school after the holidays. To my surprise the school was closed. Also, there have been occasions where I have left phone messages to staff members trying to get information. I have never gotten a return phone call from any of the staff that I have called.
This is one of the best school's in the state! The staff and faculty consistently gives the children their best, education is the top priority, and parent involvement is required.
I love DEPSA because it is a Blue Ribbon school and my child receives the best education at no cost.
I love DEPSA because it challenges my children with their high standards of academic excellence.
D.E.P.S.A. is an awesome institution for learning. I feel that they go above and beyond to provide all the students with a global approach to learning not only academics but life skills as well. Which in today's society we need more of to compete with the rest of the world. Detroit Edison has them well on their way. My daughter loves school.
This is a place where learning is expected, high expectations are met, and excellence is found in every classroom, hallway, and extra curriculum activity! I get up every morning glad to go to work and engage my students!
It's a great learning place for your children. The staff is very helpful and the school is safe.
I love Edison Public School Academy because it is a wonderful academically challenged school.
The curriculum is always pushing the children to their best. Detroit Edison Academy is motivational as well as educational.
The teachers at Edison Public School Academy are so engaged and so caring about their students! I know the children who attend EPSC are in great hands each and every day. They are learning and exceling - which is what it is all about!
Our school is a high learning institute with beautiful children that have various backgrounds. It incorporates reading and math that allows students to learn at a good pace and addresses the needs for individual needs.
i love the staff and knowing that my child is getting the best education and it is all happening in a safe and caring environment.
This school is amazing for their academic achievements as well as the fact that they have a kind, caring, and nurturing staff. The students are eager to learn and the staff is truly committed to their success.
DEPSA is an outstanding school that not only offer each student a chance to receive a well rounded education, it also offers the children fun. Last year, my daughter went to Quebec with DEPSA to learn French. What an experience! DEPSA also offer the children the opportunity to belong to the elite group of The National Elementary Honor Society, which my daughter is a proud member of. Keep up the good work DEPSA!
