As a educator, I find it difficult to find a school even closely comparable to the world-class education DEPSA offers our students. DEPSA is the epitome of a student-centered, supportive learning environment. Administrators, teachers, and students do everything possible to reach out to the success of all students. With the essential curriculum, along with 'Specials' classes including Music, Art, PE, French, Drama, Forensics, Band, etc, there is always a class of interest for students. After school programs include Elementary Show Choir, Ecology Club, Art Club, Basketball, Volleyball, Cheerleading, Dance Team, and more. Teachers and administrators can always be found at students' events. Around the clock security makes DEPSA one of the safest schools in the city. This is a very supportive environment which proves why this school was the first charter school to be named a Blue Ribbon School.
