I am currently a student here, and I absolutely love DLA! Every teacher really loves the subject they are teaching, and they truly care about the students. Although the school spirt is decent, and the sports aren't the best, we really are a big community. Most of the people are extremly nice! I can't count how many people just came up to me and said hello. And the curriculum is challenging, but the teachers are always ready to help.

I have met and made many great friends at DLA, SOME teachers are great and I have some what positive experience at DLA, and the school has great diversity. However, not too great of anything else, especially, their grading system, and sports are limited. As a senior, I just found out that Del Lago Academy (DLA) somewhat against private colleges!!! Public college was totally encouraged during senior workshops. I personally prefer the college that fits my needs and requirements versus public college at all cost. My GPA is great for me to apply to public colleges, but I do not believe public college is for everyone, and shouldn’t be discourage.
It is a very STEM school. No frills- no football, no band, etc. The teachers and staff are very supportive and helpful, but not all the students take the help. There are no real deadlines and the students can negotiate their grade. This is a shock when going to college and have deadlines and teachers that don't debate answers. I would highly recommend for any student wanting medical or engineering or another science major.
