This is my daughter's first year at Dove and I have enjoyed the entire experience. The cirriculum challenges her. Also, the teachers and staff are always friendly and helpful.
The curriculum at this school is great. There are some rules I do not agree with. However I had a nephew that transferred out of the school, and when he went to public schools it was a complete waste of time, because he already knew what they were teaching him. My kids are there to learn, a little strictness is not gong to kill anyone. Sure they might go over board, with some of them, but the main thing is our kids learn, and they excel. Maybe parents should be involved more, and help the teachers out a little.
I currently have 2 children attending Dove and a 3rd next school year and I love it for my children, they are smart girls and the curriculum and stern teaching works out just perfect for them it teaches them to be responsible and strive to do their best. I have a great relationship with my girls teachers and I am able to contact them for anything concerning my children. My child has been on the A' Honor roll since she stared there 4yrs ago my second child has all A's as well. Although I do wish they had a bigger facility for the students and I don't agree with all of the rules, there are some I would like to change but nothing major. I recommend this school to anyone who listens but, I do say its not for all kids or parents.
My child has excelled greatly since it attending this school! I look forward to my kindergartner starting next year! I am excited to see my children success in their academic future. The teachers and staff are dedicated to seeing each child succeed!
My kids have been going to this school since they opened and I used to love this school. Now I feel that all they care about is trying to make their school look good and the kids that need help are not getting the help they need. They really need a better 4th grade math teacher who can teach them in a way that they undrestand all kids learn different but all she does is tell people her credentials and its her way or she fails them thats not right this school has just been going down every year losing all the good teachers and replacing them with these stuck up ones.We're getting new principals every year so just when you get used to them they end up leaving. It's so sad this school had so much potential I used to be proud to say my kids went here.
Dove is one of the best schools that are available in Oklahoma city. Here my son has learned at a high academic level than ever before. He is encouraged by his teachers and all supporting staff to do well and try harder for his goals. I am one happy parent and am very grateful that these schools exist.
I moved my child from Nichols Hills Elementary to Dove and we have not looked back. There is community and diversity. The teachers are into education. My daughter is is 4th grade and my niece is in K. Our families are happy.
I cannot say enough about Dove. The level of education my daughter is receiving is unparalleled. The environment is always uplifting which speaks to the true character of the administration and teachers. I would highly recommend DSA Elementary to anyone who is looking for a school that will provide a rich environment and top quality education.
My child has been at DSAE for 2 years now. I love this school and the faculty. There are a few rules, I don't agree with. But, as for the education level, environment, activities, clubs, parent involvement, this school gets an A+. I have recommended DSAE to several other parents.
Awesome my kids have been going here since it opened they have improved so much the teachers are dedicated!
One of the most proudest days a s a parent was when my children were excepted to Dove...The academic curriculum is phenominal. My girls love it here. My oldest is excelling about our expectations. The school strongly encourages parental involvement. My children went to public schools in the Okc area and I hope and pray they never have to return. The school is diverse and offers several opportunities for the children. I did read another parents review and was surprised. The staff does include African Americans, Turkish, and Asian. I love the school . Best decision we have made regarding our children. There are policies in place that could be considered tough, but I believe it teaches discipline and respect for others.
My daughter has been at Dove since the being and us 4 th grade now my son is now going also, they both love it. I'm a sub with the putnam city schools I would not send my kids to any other school. Thanks DSA my family loves you.
Dove Science Academy Elementary is a new school. I have done research on various schools in OKC, and DSA is one of the BEST. They really care about students.
Dove Elementary is an excellent elementary school. Diverse student population, involved parents, dedicated teachers, small safe school environment...
Excellent learning environment with dedicated teachers, many extracurricular activities and strict discipline policy. It is impossible to be perfect but it is one of the best elementary schools in the metro area
SO disappointed. Disgusting bathrooms with no tissue or paper towels (according to my kids, it's always like this) and reeking of urine, food served still frozen, inedible or actually running out of food, teachers hired for one class then made to teach another, spanish substitute for the majority of the year that doesn't speak spanish, math teacher leaving for 3 weeks for his birthday with NO substitute, humiliating a VERY shy girl for wearing nail polish, so much more but not enough room to list it all! I started as the biggest advocate, and completely regret it now. Public school is so much better than this!
As a parent, I have been satisifed with the positive learning environment the school provides for the students. The Administrators have been very responsive and receptive to new ideas or concerns. The school needs to increase their efforts with recruiting qualified minority teachers. The schools enrollment is very diverse however, there are no Asians, African American, or Native American instructors. This sends the wrong message to our children - minorities - can't be teachers.
