School Reviews

  • Recommended June 25, 2013 - My daughter has been at SDS since 4K and she will be entering 4th grade next year. I have been so impressed with the advanced curriculum, the quality teachers and with the small class size. In 4K, she went to PE 4 days a week, art 2x a week, and library, Chinese, Computer (Mac Lab) and Music all 1x a week. She could count from 1 to 100 in Chinese at the age of 4...In 3rd grade, she learned the skeletal system and the basics of Algebra in a math/science based class called Frontiers. In addition, she has developed so much confidence. The teachers encourage the kids to ask questions and to be inquirers at such a young age, that very little intimidates them...What a wonderful environment! I look forward to her middle and upper school years at SDS. In addition,their endowed art program is amazing! - Posted by Parent
