Parent: My daughter was the only person from her school to attend Ramona so she was nervous. Within the first month, she was asking to come to school early. She especially loves her teachers and feels like she has learned so much from them. The academics are challenging but the expectations are realistic. She was able to join a sport and there is where she has made friends in all of the grades. The administration is intelligent, really listens to parents and takes immediate action on issues. The campus is peaceful and just so beautiful! I am excited to see what the coming year will bring for my daughter.

Alum: I transferred to DSIS in the fall of my senior year. I was on track academically, and had more than enough credits for graduating at my high school, but I was itching to spend more time at the park and in the library than in a classroom. When I came to 'class' on Wednesday, my only job was to turn in my independent discoveries of the recommended learning material, and receive new assignments. My teacher while I went to school there was Christine Easton, and she was a very welcoming and supportive mentor. While I was there, she encouraged me to learn all I could, and not get stressed out about the grade of others views of my work. She especially encouraged my hard work in English, a subject I've always loved, and even presented challenges to me where I had the opportunity to test myself. The style of attendance is similar to college, and I'm thankful that I had the opportunity to go to DSIS.

High School Junior: Again this is a great Catholic School, the teachers are the best and believe in what they do. You do not have teachers that are there because they can not be fired as in a lot of public schools.
