I am currently a student at DSHA and I love it. The students are there to learn, which makes for a very positive learning environment. The teachers do a superb job and go out of their way to ensure the success of each and every student. The courses are rigorous, yet manageable and pleasantly enjoyable. Overall, DSHA is a great place to learn and have fun while developing lifelong skills and becoming a knowledgeable, well-rounded individual. It is a great school.
DSHA is a great alternative to Milwaukee public schools. However, for the more competitive, highly- rated districts like Mequon, Hartland, or Elmbrook, think about it carefully. Some poor teachers are kept because they believe in the mission. Math and science are weak,unless the student is on the AP or honors track. Parents who have kids at both MUHS and DSHA will admit DSHA is great for athletics. There is a culture of alcohol that permeates all parent activites. It is the elephant in the room. The English department is quite strong, as is the theatre arts. The whole "we get girls" mantra is true, and the students make lifelong friendships.
I am a DSHA alumn, class of 1998! My whole educational background before HS was public schools from West Allis and early on Milwaukee. Public schools cannot even hold a candle to the wonderful education I received at DSHA. The teachers went above and beyond to make sure you were always on track, you were never just a number. The economical backgrounds of the student body was diverse. My family was not rich and I never felt an issue with that, nor did I view the school as snobby. It was all about getting a wonderful education, building confidence, become a young woman, and having fun while doing so! Do not be intimidated by an all girl atmosphere or the tuition, this school is for any girl of any ethnic or economical background who wants to get ahead and have fun while doing so!
DSHA is a great school that really teaches students important values and how to suceed and helps them become better, well rounded people.
Exceptional academic program. Principal leadership is top notch. Counselling resources for academics and school related issues are very supportive
Not happy with some of the teachers. High tuition in a time of growing inflstiom
DSHA provided my daughters with a superior jump start going into college. An outstanding academic institution that provides the girls graduating a foundation not only in academics but in becoming a whole person. It was a very fun, energetic and challenging experience for the girls. One that will allow them to become active members of the community.
Our only two daughters will graduate from DSHA. This is a school that has provided an exceptional education driving self-reliance, spirituality, critical thinking and self-confidence. The education, leadership and environment are worth every penny of the tuition.
I am currently a freshman at DSHA and I hated the idea of attending there at first, but as time progressed I am learning much more than I would in a public high school. I'm still not used to seeing so many girls at one time and I'm still adjusting to the school, but overall it's not bad at all.
I wasn't completely satified with my daughter at DS, but it is a good school although not very diverse.
I'd recommend DSHA to anyone looking for a serious education combined with a fun high school experience.
The quality education at DSHA is exceptional. I have never been more happy with a school. My daughter enjoys attending school, and she is very self sufficent and all her shyness has diminished. This school is an excellent place for a girl to build confidence, focus on her studies, and become a well rounded person.
It has been one of the best decisions we made on behalf of our daughter. She has become so committed to her studies, developed wonderful leadership skills and has become dedicated to service in our community. Her teachers are top notch, they not only challenge her, but seem to geniunely care about her. Mr. Grandy, Ms. Weiss, Ms. Casper are just some of the stand out teachers she has had over the years. Issues of morality and spirituality are woven into every day. DSHA has high goals to continue to improve not only it's facilities but also works to improve the curriculum, staff and opportunities made available to the girls. The school celebrates family by hosting Mother/Daughter, Father /Daughter events and service projects. There is a waiting list for this all girls high school for a reason!
Class of 1976 Alumni This was the place that gave me both my roots and wings. I was taught how to think, discern, reason and embrace change and growth. I became 'me'. Life hasn't always been as easy as it was in high school, but the lessons learned have endured. My understanding of the value of the education I received has only deepened over time!
I will be a sophomore at DSHA. I cannot think of anything negative to say, except that some girls are a bit boy crazy. It's extremely diverse, ethnically, spiritually, and economically. We have good financial aid, great academics, and brilliant teachers. We have great sports teams, even the national champion rugby team. Theology class deepened my faith immensely. I have also met many of other religions, something brand new to me. Lutherans, Muslims, Baptists, and Jews are all welcomed just as any other student. All races interact, a great quality. This is an amazing school. Don't miss out.
Excellent academics, but snobbery hurts the spirits of the more fragile girls.
This school is a shinning star in a dark sky. This is the place where girls can become women with encouragement and pride from their classmates. This school produces confident, well mannered women.
Great place to send a young woman. The facilities are great, the teachers care about the students and the students are the next leaders of society.
