    My experience at Dock Mennonite Academy was one to remember. I always hear about students after they graduate do not stay in contact with their peers, but it isn't that way at Dock. Yes, most people you lose contact with but I have developed solid relationships with the people at high school and even the teachers that they still remember, care and keep in contact with you. When I go back for sports events the teachers and students who I went to school with genuinally care about you and what you are doing after graduating. It was and still is a caring environment!

    I have had several children go through over the years and am very satisfied overall. Excellent safe facilities, superior technology compared to other schools of its kind. Great teachers, many who have been there a long time which speaks well of the place. Longevity of teachers sometimes works against using technology well however.

    Frustrated by leadership pandering to views of a vocal monitory of wealthy\powerful families, over a more progressive majority.

    Successful Mennonite businesses in the area give a lot of money to the school, along with churches helping pay for their students.

    They say they are Anabaptists, but some actions do not support Anabaptist teachings. Riding the fence to please everyone has negative consequences long term and that falls squarely on administration.

    Merging Christoper Dock with PennView Christian to form Dock Mennonite Academy a couple years ago has also done damage to the high school’s reputation and overall financial health.
    Dock Mennonite Academy is an excellent school with an academically diverse population. Some of the students are receiving learning support, while others are graduating and going to Princeton or state school honors programs. I've been very impressed with the quality of education, and care given by teachers to students. I have seen many teachers go well beyond what is expected for students. The opportunities that students have to be involved in things like athletics, arts day, musicals or dramas, or choir provide a significant difference for students in these formative high school years. My wife and I both love Dock Mennonite Academy!
