I am an 8th grader who is finishing up my last year at this phenomenal school. I came from Oak View Middle school looking for a fresh start after going through the torrential social drama at oak view, And i have to say, I was extremely glad i did, I built lasting friendships here, and have learned so much through the past two years at this school. the teachers really understand you, and the nice thing is, you have pretty much the same teachers throughout your three years as a junior higher. this way, you get to know your teachers in a way that traditional public schools cannot offer. But, i do regret to say, this year has brought new changes as well. the core classes were extended to 70 minutes, when they had previously been 50 minutes, therefore eliminating the time for an electives class. it was very upsetting, and in our advisories, we are often times not with all of the people in our grade. this was extremely upsetting, as many were hoping to get their favorite teachers this year for homerooms. Despite it all though, Davinci Did a very nice job on what true education should be. And i hope that this school will find the money eventually to become stronger and even better.
