My daughter graduated from The Delphian School and I couldn't be happier with the responsible and ethical adult she has become. She has a world view far beyond her years which I largely attribute to the excellent curriculum available at the school.
We have two boys at Delphi. We started with one but once we saw the incredible results of our older one we also decided to start our younger son. Both are making very good academic strides but in addition, they have become more confident, more responsible individuals working on their academics on their own self determinism. My older son disliked grammar and algebra and saw no need for these subjects when he came to Delphi. Now he has become very proficient in these and even likes them! He says his viewpoint had been looking through a narrow tunnel and now his whole perspective on life changed and his viewpoint has broadened.
My daughter has excelled at the Delphian school. Her reading and vocabulary are what You would normally see in a college student of 2 years. She is also become a great person while being there. We are very pleased as the public school system just doesn't delivery this kind of product in a student.
When our kids finished pre-school they were ready for college- Well almost! After homeschooling them and trying other private schools, we enrolled one of our daughters at the Delphian School in Oregon. Since attending the Delphian school, she has grown in more ways than she ever would have at home. She has become the student body president and a great leader. Her communication skills are caring and effective. She knows how to complete a project to a DONE. I really love the personal attention not only the students receive at Delphi, but also the attention and care given to the parents as well. I see that the Delphian School cares for the WHOLE family by staying in communication from all departments. I regularly receive communication from the science, foreign language, physical education, arts and senior faculty. My daughter loves being independent and thrives in an ethical, highly motivated to learn environment.
The Delphian School is truly unique. The program is a competence-based system (as opposed to time-based grades), the structure and application of which ensures that children really understand and can apply what they're studying. Children learn methods to help them through any study problems with real understanding. The school's holistic approach to education takes into account the well-being of the child at every stage of development. They do not let a child progress past things he or she doesn't understand, while at the same time, the instructors encourage children to excel in all of their fields of interest. My daughters have been at the school for two years, and they've never been happier nor shown such enthusiasm for learning.
My son was quite precocious and public school was not giving him the academic interest he needed, thus he would find himself finding other not so positive activities to get involved in. Not terribly bad, but definitely we could see the 'writing on the wall'. He interviewed the school and after seeing what it had to offer demanded we allow him to go. That happened for the summer program and after that he demanded that he stay and graduate (he was 12). He's been there for nearly one year now and I've watched him grow academically (he's challenged finally), his interests broadened in other areas (sports, music, computers, math), and in his social skills. . The school is dedicated to helping the child reach their potential. I'd highly recommend it.
The Delphian School has been an entire family envolement, one that has been rewarding for all. Our son graduated last June and is thriving in anything he does. He received from Delphi the most any parent could want from an educational facility, the tools he will need to live life to the fullest. But most importantly, how to apply those tools correctly and with certainty. Our family is a strong supporter of the Delphian School and would like to extend an invitation to every family that is searching for a true education for their children.
My daughter is currently enrolled and this the second term she has attended. The most impressive aspect of this program is the strong academics combined with the leadership and team building skills that the students are challenged to learn and practice. The Delphian School has taken a bright, energetic, out spoken 13 year old and helped her develop her skills in leadership. Additionally, in the first year she worked to further develop writing skills that I would have expected from a first year college student. She wrote over 7000 words, all stories with great content, grammar and spelling. This was accomplished on her own command of the language and did not rely on the short cuts provided in this age of computerization and spell checks. Having my daughter away from home is a sacrifice, but that is far out weighed by the quality of education she is receiving and using!
When our 24 yr old was 9 years old he called and registered himself (no kidding) for their summer program after meeting some of their students. Not only did he have a great deal of fun with their VERY active summer program, he got to choose the courses he was interested in, loved his studies, excelled in their half theory, half hands on program. They corrected his handwriting and brought his interest up in reading. Our 22 year old attended 2 years. His academic scores went to a whole new level after one year of HS. He loved the school. Our 18 yr old loved all 6 years, graduating in 2004. She played 3 sports, was a member of choir, student council, theater, toured Europe, went on 2 business trips (east and west coast), read hundreds of books, (classics) and made wonderful lifetime friendships. Drugfree, high standards, multi-national, challenging, beautiful environment.
I'm not sure I could be happier with The Delphian School. My daughter has progressed from being a bit shy to being outgoing, motivated in the extreme and with a enormous self-imposed sense of honesty. She's always been good academically, the school has helped to push this so that she is challenged, not floating along. The staff maintain the respect of the students by their knowledge, caring and industriousness. They have the proper balance of being professional and being friendly. Participation on the sports teams has been broadening for my daughter and kept her very fit. Though my daugher is 3,000 miles away geographically, we are very close and I am involved with the school. I visit 2-3 times per year and I am welcomed as part of the group. Honestly, I have only positive things to say and recommend the school to any student who meets the standards for enrollment.
