I absolutely love DA! Whenever I have an issue on my work I can always reach out to the teachers and they're happy to meet before or after school to explain. One time I had a family issue and missed a couple of days of school and when I came back, all the teachers welcomed me and made sure I got notes and work that I had missed. The students are also amazing and supportive as well. I may have trouble getting out of bed in the morning, especially on Mondays, but once I'm at school, the warm atmosphere is enjoyable to be in. One small issue I have is that 1 or 2 of the teachers can't always be reached by email and that can get frustrating occasionally. However, I truly do love being at DA, and I highly recommend it!

DA is a small school that still manages to offer an amazing number of opportunities to its students. The small class size ensures that no student is a number—every girl is valued as an individual and is helped to succeed. I love the community I’ve found here. The curriculum is challenging, but I know I will be prepared for college and whatever else lies ahead. I’m so happy I chose DA and know I will have these friendships for a lifetime!
DA offers an excellent education in an environment that is welcoming, encouraging and kind. Young women from all backgrounds are inspired to be active members of the academic and spiritual community in a variety of ways. While the workload requires commitment to study and strong organizational skills, my daughter is thriving with the support of administration and faculty. She has made lovely friends and my husband and I have met other caring parents through meetings and school social events. I have seen my daughter develop greater confidence and independence with commuting to NYC. There are so many benefits that the school and city offers. I don’t believe she would have grown as much as she has if she attended a suburban high school. DA’s size, academic and club offerings and values were the right choice.
