My children have attended quite a few different schools, both public and private, due to my husband's frequent job relocation. This has been by far our family favorite. The teachers are caring, the class sizes are small and they have a lot to offer to be a smaller school. It is a Christian based school and their is a lot of family involvement. I know that my children are cared for when I drop them off in the mornings and when I pick them up in the afternoon, they are happy! I do think that the curriculum could be a little more challenging for the upper grades. I do feel that the new Headmaster is doing an exceptional job at monitoring this. Our hearts belong to JDA! GO RAIDERS!!

As a African American going to a predominantly white institution I believe there should be more diversity. The school isn't that big so the students safety is good because there are cameras in each hall way in different directions.I think the school should have more courses in the field of STEM for students like me who want to pursue or major in any stem field they choose to go in . The food they cook on regular bases is basically fired in oil but you do have the option of getting a salad with the toppings you like.
I changed schools when I was going into the seventh grade and I honestly could not have picked a better school to attend! I love JDA with all my heart and I cannot believe I have to leave these halls in May.
