Alice Deal Middle School
9 Best Public Middle Schools in District of Columbia
- District of Columbia Public Schools, DC
Freshman: At Deal I was able to take part in many activities. I was able to take part in a club called Geo plunge and I was able to learn about the size, population, and state history . Then twice a year we go to a tournament and compete against other schools. I was also able to take part in a club called Girl Up. Girl Up is a organization that is apart of the UN. In the club we raised money to help girls around the world. This past year the UN used the money to buy bikes. The bikes are used to help girls get to their schools. While at Deal I took part in many sports. My coaches were experienced and were into and dedicated to helping every player develop into a better student and athlete. My teachers were strict and fun. They made sure everyone understood the material before moving on. Before we have standardized test they go back over lessons and reteach it, so that we don't forget.

Parent: Our family LOVES CCS! Our two boys went through CCS and are much better young men and students as a result. The overall environment at the Catholic School is exceptional. Academically, the students are encouraged, supported, and pushed to do their very best in the classroom. The teachers do an amazing job of reaching each student individually which translates into a trusting, caring, and successful school experience for the student, the parent(s), and also the teacher. In and out of the classroom the teachers and staff also do an extraordinary job of instilling discipline, self-respect and respect for others, thoughtfulness, and a sense of community and personal responsibility. Our boys continue to excel each and every year both as students and as young men in our community and I believe those valuable traits are a direct result of the foundation, mentorship, and guidance that they received as students at the Charlottesville Catholic School.
