I have two children who attend DJ and I am very disappointed in the school as a whole. We came from a wonderful school in which my children were doing fabulous. The teachers were caring, helpful, always asked for parental involvement, and the kids were happy. The teachers at DJ are what I like to refer to as filing cabinet teachers. They don't actually teach; rather, they pull a handout of their filing cabinet and send the kids off. The staff is no better. They are rude and very unfriendly. My son was actually attacked by another child and they punished both him and his attacker equally. I never had a problem at our old school. Numerous parents in the area are home schooling or using private school.
This is my son's 2nd year at DJ Montague. We've moved many times in his short life and this is the sixth school he's attended. I must say, however, this is the first school that he completely adjusted to. The programs are great! I can't speak highly enough about the teachers who are kind and genuinely care for their students. His classmates have been wonderful too. He's made some really good friends. He actually wants to go to school everyday! He loves it and so does his father and I.
My grandson has attented this school for two years now, and I know without a doubt that this is one of the best schools around. The teachers are wonderful! They have a great repor with the children and it's obvious the children feel the same way. My grandson had some problems emotionally re. school and this school worked with him in every way possible to assist him through this difficult time. Everyone is so upbeat and positive from administrators down, the enthusiasm is exemplary.
Our family has had to move 3 times in the course of my children's elementary education and we have been blessed to attend D.J. Montague. The staff are attentive to both my gifted children and were also very attentive to my son who had difficulty adjusting to yet another school and teachers. I have nothing but praise for the school program and facilities.
