They do not leave you in the dark about homework. At the beginning of the year you go to a meeting to know exactly what to expect from the school and the school year. They made it very clear on what I should expect and with us reaching the end of the school year soon it has been exactly what they said it would be. Homework is important for my children and they have made homework fun and exciting for my children.
This school has gone above and beyond what I could expect for preschool through 1st grade for my children. There is great communication, great teaching, and an overall fun, learning atmosphere. This school has been around for many, many years and as a former student and now a mom of two children who go there I could not suggest anything better for helping develop your children.
This school doesn’t really build strong character because of the things the children are witness on a daily basis. My children already had strong character because we teach them in the home, in public and at church.
Yes, they over work the students with homework that is barely above grade level and public school level. The student graduate from DPS and can’t pass standardize testing to get into other private schools. The children and the parent suffer because the students have to attend remediation courses during the summer months.
Pre-school through-out kindergarten made the school seem like it was a good school but it really not a good school. Children after finishing 6th grade can barely pass the ISEE exam to enter other private schools to continue their education. They are only worried about the money and not the students academy future!!!
