Most of the teachers are well-educated people with a lot of experience; unfortunately, I feel they lack sensitivity, interpersonal skills and friendliness toward the students. I have had the sad experience of seeing good teachers leave for lack of a team environment and leadership. The best thing about this school is all the attention it receives from both the media and national organizations. However, every year there are less extracurricular activities and harsher discipline policies. I have seen the organization deteriorate as they try to expand without a comprehensive or at least well thought-out growth plan. Students are extremely regulated and there is little opportunity for creativity and community out-reach. Most students don t care for the school but, I have to admit it looks very good on paper with its strict policies and high-falutant curriculum. I do not plan on attending again.

good School, Everythings great, But you see the lunch is disgusting,last year i went there to& the food was catored &now they make it themselves oh i mean they 'Buy it From Albertsons' & yet they still make you pay for it! & there Small portions, they dont even give us straws cause kids chew on them,they check before we throw our food away if we have our 'sporks' because kids Chew on them. Outside Area, well you see, Now sense they're building the high schoool, which they shouldve started earlier(in the summer) we have about a Strip of Land to Be'Active', yesss isnt that Wonderful? & You know what, people may say its a Great Schoool, But get an Opinion from a Student, it Sucks, iHate waking up everymorning knowing your going to the place you hate.

This school is the best school I have seen in El Paso, Texas so far.The discipline and the curriculum is great.The El Paso School District needs to learn from Burnhamwood School District.

I have a child difficult to challenge. DaVinci challenges her academically as well as in the arts. The school is well organized with class A teachers and faculty. I cant imagine my child going anywhere else.

Wonderful school has much to offer in everything. Academics always come first. Saturday tutoring available. Teachers are extremely impressive. Keyboard and violin lessons are available. Lots of sports to choose from.

In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
