The teachers go above and beyond for their students. Their gifted program pushes the students to do their best and I have seen my children’s test scores soar even higher than they were when we started. They also focus on the children’s mental and social abilities. I’m so happy I chose to enroll my children in DHCS.
The teachers here are probably one of the best things about the school. Not only do we have foreign teachers for diversity, but they know each and every student at the campus and always make time with them to help them with things they do not understand. The staff is very friendly and great to be around. All of the styles of teaching are different in the classes, some are lecture based, some hands on, and some discussion based. They communicate to us by both real life talking and emailing back and forth to answer questions and explain things that are needed to be explained.
