School Reviews

We have been at DI for two years and highly recommend it. My daughter is in Pre-K and my son is in Preschool now. We love the school...the teachers are extremely nurturing, the curriculum is up-to-date and the school has a great family feel to it. We plan on sending our children to DI for their entire grammar school education.

To add to my review...I forgot to mention that the school is wonderfully diverse. It is one of the features that originally attracted us to DI.
