I did a tour of the school during their after school program was in session. The school was clean and the kids were having so much fun on the playground. I had several students come up and introduce themselves and ask questions about my kid (who wasn't with me at the time). I admit was pleasantly surprised at the genuine interest the students took in me and my kid. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. The level of classwork the kids were doing was considerably more challenging than what my daughter is doing at her charter school. I came back with my daughter to show her the school and within five minutes she was playing with the kids on the playground. We signed her up for the summer camp and can't wait for school to start in the fall.

I toured this school UN announced and have to say, they are legit. The teachers are amazing, working with small class sizes they are able to give the personal attention - which I feel lacks in other schools- EVEN other private schools. The kids are happy, the staff is friendly, the facility is clean, orderly and family-oriented. My review= 2 thumbs up!

Finding a good Christian School in LasVegas was hard til we found DJ's Christian Academy. We are soo glad to have found a school that values education, bible study, and each individual student. There aren't any sports here but having a computer and library room for the kindergarteners is great. The Kindergarten teacher Mrs. V is just superb with the children and getting the most out of each child. My child comes home daily singing Bible songs, talking about how much fun he had, and teaching me something new that he learned. My baby is reading, writing, and adding double digit numbers in his head...WOW I just love DJ's and Mrs. V.

It was a tough decision, private school versus public school. I spent many hours doing research. Now that my daughter has completed kindergarten, I am certain I made the best decision with private school and with the school I chose. DJ's Academy has proven to be a positive and wonderful experience for my daughter both academically and socially. When compared with the CCSD kindergarten benchmarks, the students in the kindergarten class have met them AND BEYOND! I have no doubt that the high academic success will continue. Her kindergarten teacher had no problem adjusting the curriculum for her high achieving students in order to advance their learning. Although tuition is steep, I highly recommend DJ's Academy.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
