    Derby Academy Reviews

    I was blown away by how well my children’s teachers got to know them and understand their learning styles in such a short period of time. I expected that at my first parent teacher conference I would have to fill in the teachers about my kids but I didn’t have to as they completely told me all the things I was going to tell them about my kids!

    The school focuses on educating the “whole child”. There is an equal focus on academics, social, emotional growth, the arts, and sports.
    It is a fun experience, the classes are fun, as well as the teachers. I enjoy the food, sports, campus, as well as the students.
