I am a student that has been going to DEA~W since the 5th grade and now Im goin to the 8th this year and this is a great school.The teachers are so awesome because they teach you everything that you need to know for high school and college. Although my 7th grade year was a little rough because it had more rules and strick as ever there were security and all types of safety around where no one can get hurt.My learning process at that school was great.Mrs.Robinson the math teacher has so many different types of ways to teach so that every child receive the information,Ms.Mansell the science teacher does hands on projects so that the class is so much more interresting,the gym teacher Coach Johnson does his job vewry well and makes sure that all are in good shape,Ms.Hetzel is cool also and a good instructor!!!
My child has attended David Ellis for K-2 grade. I am very pleaseed with her level of education. Her vocabulary is advanced when observing how other children her age communicate with her. The staff are very much aware of the activity of the children, even in latchkey. I agree with the other parent. If you're not an active parent, you will find much to complain about. This school is zero tolerant of violence and I have seen letters of parents posted in the school, begging to let their child come back after being asked to leave for bad behavior.
I am a parent of two children from David Ellis- West, I can say David Ellis is one of the better school in the Detroit Area. The school have done great improvements over the past year. I had doubts at first but we all go through trail and error. When it comes to parent feed back I notice the more you are imvolved with the school and what is going on the better feed back you get. We had some great times these past couple years. I have one child that just graduated from David Ellis- West going to Cass. I have one more coming and in two years one leaving. I will say if you want a staff that cares about the children they have the best husband and wife team there the Sharpe's. I will give this school another change! It just open!
My daughter enter kindergarden fall of 2007. Since then I have been very pleased with the school and the staff. I reconize that they are growing quickly which always means trial by error but over all the school appears to be dedicated to creating a compassionate and educationally challenging enviroment.
Hi, my daughter goes to this school and I don't like it! They don't treat everyone the same and that is not right! Her teacher does not keep up with the work that is getting done & the work that is getting done she don't really check it she just mark anything. The principle is also not fair when it come's to the kid's in the school and is fast to call you'r child a lier! The extracurricular activities are horrible and they really don't have any. At first I thought this was a great school but now I see this school to me is nothing but an big disappointment and I can't wait to get my child out of there!
