Our sons have attended this school for almost 3 years now. They really adore it. The school adheres to their mission. The administrators and teachers are passionate about what they do and work together in sync to meet the students` needs. They are responsive to the parents. It is a faith-based Christian environment, but open to all people. The school culture feels like this: no matter which corner of the earth your family comes from, you and your child are welcome here. There is a feeling of acceptance of everyone at this school. Academically, the students are supported in their areas of weakness and encouraged to shine in the areas of their strengths. Every day, we commute in traffic to get our sons to this school; it is a lot of effort on our part, but completely worth the sacrifice. 5/5 rating!

DSA is a wonderful school. My daughter is in Elementary school now and she is very happy. The low student to teacher ratio sllows her to get the personal attention she needs to do well and to catch any issues early. The Christian environment is wonderful while being respectful to differences in belief. Communication with teachers is very efficient (via email and person to person meetings). The kids have a wide variety of extra curriculars to choose from. The extra curricular sports have room to improve but the children certainly get exposure to various activities/sports they can choose to pursue via a club. I am very happy with DSA and would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a good school for their children.

We are so thankful for DSA. We have 3 children attending elementary, middle, & high school. They provide an excellent academic program with teachers who truly care about the students. 3 years ago, everyone helped our kids through a difficult transition here when we moved. DSA has a wonderful Christian culture where our children can grow, be supported, and excel. I can see it in the kids, families, teachers, staff, & the administration. Our kids get to develop skills in sports, music, drama - there's so many choices & it's all on 1 campus! I wouldn't want my kids anywhere else!

I love the class sizes at Divine Savior. My kids get the personalized attention and care that I really want for them and they also get the spiritual aspect that I think is very important. All around I''m very satisfied with their schooling.

Great school!! Our son has been in the school for two years and we are happier every day. Friendly environment with moral structure. The teachers are just amazing, who go above and beyond to make the learning experience fun. Students respect each other. The communication with the teachers is great. We know our son is receiving the education.

Divine Savior Academy is the best! Our son is very happy in his school, that is what reassures us that we made the right decision when we chose DSA for his academic and spiritual education. The academic program is outstanding, and counts with highly trained staff; and his teachers are adorable; the best! I really like the great communication inside the school and the like-family environment which is very important to us. I would highly recommend this school!!!

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
