I really thing DeZavala is a great school. My son has been going to DeZavala since kindergarden. Each teacher that he has had is wonderful. He is currently in Mrs. Argo's class and loves it. She is a wonderful and a caring teacher.

I strongly recommend Ms.Knox as a second grade teacher. My son was in her class for a very short time{he was moved to a bridge class} and in that time I knew that this teacher had the gift of teaching. She cares for every child in her class. You feel comfortable talking to her and she is more than willing to discuss how your child is doing. I feel that every child, that is in her class is very fortunate.
