Instilling Goodness Elementary & Developing Virtue Secondary Schools Reviews

All Categories
Values academics, not much athletics. Half of high school is international students. Almost all high school students live in dorm. Strong math department. Very close-knit and you can have a lot of one-to-one time with the teacher if you want. Limited course selection; only AP courses available for some subjects in Junior/Senior year (no normal/honors courses) and very few electives (only for PE). Heavy homework load for some classes. Students often stressed and low-energy. School spirit low. However, majority of students are really nice and friendly, and you can make friends from many countries in Asia, such as China, Malaysia, Taiwan, and Vietnam. Living in the dorm helps expand social and life skills and strengthens friendships.

I went to Developing Virtue Girls School 7th through 12th grade and in my honest opinion, I feel that there is a mix of good and bad. When my parents decided to send me to DVGS, they thought I would be getting the best education in the best environment, but I came to realize it was not difficult enough. I breezed through the homework load in junior high. It could have been because I was a stellar student before transferring (in 4th grade standardized assessments indicated I had the reading level of an 8th grader).
But then when I reached high school, I was academically unprepared for a lot of the standardized test. I had to work 3 times as hard to manage my grades and it got to the point where I just thought I was dumb. It took me a while to get back into my rhythm with a lot of help. Teachers at my school are certainly not the best at teaching, but they do have a lot of compassion and helped me through my problems with patience.
We learn a lot here honestly, but I feel that we also have to sacrifice a lot. For example, none of the clubs are taken very seriously here are not too fond of us joining them (no more than two or three for high schoolers, and for the junior high students, none) for the fear that we might lose our academic focus. Academics are the most important things here; if you don't do well, you pretty much are restricted from extracurricular. And since the standards are set very high, most students develop study skills. Although not always successful, teachers and staff members try their best to prepare us for APs and college (there's a lack of resources).
