My daughter is flourishing here. Amazing staff, great activities after hours that get kids, parents, staff and school involved for fundraisers or just fun like movie nights, haunted bonfires, meet the teacher and other stuff. We love dondero and living in Portsmouth, VERY WELL ROUNDED!

We moved here from out of State recently and Dondero is an Amazing school. Lots of great activities to get families involved during and after school. School spirit and healthy friendship building is a true focus here. Really cool outdoor classroom with a garden, hiking trails and and I brand new outdoor adventure playground being rolled out in stages over the next couple years. Teachers are dynamic, administrators are accessible and the kids are amazing. No complaints!
