I graduated from this school in 2012 with a full-ride to two different universities and a handful of different scholarships, alongside with some of the most talented, successful people I know. My years as a Dove Science Academy student were some of the best years of my life. At Dove, we are a family -middle school students, high school students, teachers, staff, everyone. With a small student population, I felt safe and comfortable surrounded by all the familiar faces. In addition, the teachers and administration are dedicated to seeing that we as students reach our full potential. Dove gave me more than an education - it gave me the confidence, determination, and drive to succeed in life. These aspects enhanced my learning experience and helped me develop into the confident, ambitious young adult I am. I know for a fact that if it wasn't for Dove, I wouldn't be where I am today.
This school was a entirely to big disappointment. My daughter was verbally abused by one of the most trusted teachers, yet he wasn't even fired. He is a 10th grade teacher and he said my daughter was worthless because she didn't complete any of her work, he said she would not make it any where in life. This is rediculous! I am supposed to be able to drive my child to SCHOOL and be able to trust that she will be safe. School is a place you should learn about how to be safe and seek new oppurtunities.
I posted a report on this page in April of 2010. I am back to report that in these last couple of years, I am still convinced that DOVE SCIENCE ACADEMY is the best school for my daughter. She has maintained nothing but straight "A's, and has been placed on the Honor Roll each year. Of course her personal effort has played a great deal in this, but her teachers have also contributed greatly in keeping her interest focused on her studies, and the subjects that will be important to her on the road to college. They continue to provide the support that she needs to stay on the right track, and I have nothing but praises for DSA. A school that sends the teachers to your home to discuss anything regarding the education your child is receiving is few and far between. In my opinion, that type of concern only shows how much Dove truly cares about the quality of education that your child is receiving, along with any input the parents may have. Keep up the good work Dove.
I enrolled my son in DSA Elementary last year and this year he is in first grade. He has gotten so much encouragement from his teachers and progressed wonderfully. I am extremely impressed with the quality of this school. I will most certainly enroll my other little one in kindergarten next year. I have worked for Oklahoma City Public Schools to be exact 3 of them; and I am telling you, you will not find better schools than DSA schools. On another note my sister in law graduated from DSA high school in OKC, she got a full ride scholarship and if that doesn't get your attention nothing will!
I am a student at this school. I am not impressed with it, I am placed in a class with underachieving students. Mind you I get A's and B's. These students disrupt my learning and mock me whenever I try to help them with their studies. Also the library has a multitude of children's books which aren't at the level of many 6-12 grade students. I try to express my wish to be moved to one of the classes with students of my intelligence, but nothing works.
my child has been at this school since 6th grade she is inthe 9th now i like the fact that the teachers will come on there on time on a saturday to help any student who is not understanding the subject. she has thrived at this school and is focused on her goal of going to collage
DSA is the best school. I searched in OKC and I relized that their test scores are the top all over the state... So how can we explain this success?. (I think it is not related graduated with a Bachelor's degree Magna cum laude.) They know their job and how to teach the students. Thanks a lot for this success.......DSA
I am a senior at Dove and absoloutly love it. I've attended for 4 years and can honestly say that it has the best environment for any student. You feel welcomed and respected. Not only is the education outstanding, I am truly provided with an experience of a life time. I highly recommend it!
Dove Science Academy taught me the values of becoming a better student and a well-rounded person. DSA is an ideal place if you want your child to learn/interact with other students from a variety of cultures. The diversity between the staff and students help create DSA a place of learning, not judging. I cannot thank this school enough for what it has done for me. This school will/is preparing me for college and is guiding me down the right path.
i go to dove and i had bad grades in math but that had no affect on me being accepted to dove..dove is one of the best schools i've ever went to..
I pulled both of my children from this school. It is a very bad school. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree Magna cum laude. I've lived in several states. I've taught school. I know education. This has to be the worst school I've ever seen and I regret ever putting my children there.
Dove is providing the best education for free. Great environment, awesome activities and devoted teachers. Highly recommended. Cat
dove science provides the best education for free. you can only get this kind of education in the private schools which means about $7 -10,000 yearly.
My daughter and me interviewed with for my child to attend in her 8th grade year.We had to provide her transcript from the previous school. She had good grades in everything but math. The principal looked down on my daughter because of this. She was in an elementary algebra course her 7th grade year. He said their students were in Algebra 1 in their 7th grade year. He felt like she had no chance of catching up. Made her feel she could not keep up with the curriculum. She cried once we left his office. He was not positive and very unprofessional in how he approached my daughter. Not student friendly.This was 2yrs ago. The school advertises for At Risk Students. Students that need an alternative outlet. If this is not so. It should not be advertised as though it is.
I really love this school for my daughter. I feel like they have a very good curiculum and my daughter loves the school. Dove has a great learning atmosphere.
