Looking Back All My Memories Are Positive! I Liked All My Teachers And Coaches. And Was Able To Play Sports They Didn't Offer Through My Former High School. I Am Thankful For My Two Years Spent There. I Felt Much More Engaged And Cared For With DA's Teachers Over Public HS Teachers. I Just Felt The Need To Comment After Reading A Few Negative Reviews. I Graduated In 06..

This school gives the easy way out for every student, They draw you in by making it seem as if they will accommodate your student and help them thrive academically. They have a very corrupt system that looks great at first glance and once they take your $30,000 your in too deep. The school keeps everything they do under raps and they make sure outside eyes do not see what really takes place during school hours. The school does not even hire substitute teachers, they have other teachers with off periods fill in so that no one else sees the shady system that they make look so appealing. Overall this school is a complete in utter scam and your child will not be prepared for anything in the real world if they attend this school.
A great school. Student centered and student focused. Our teachers leverage strong relationships with their students, allowing for high expectations and high accountability balanced with high levels of individual support!
