My son has always been very bright and excelled academically (straight A`s at another prestigious private school in the area), but he can be shy and has traditionally struggled socially. We made the decision to move him because he was so unhappy and "hated school". While we haven`t been at DKJA long, from the very first day, my son had a smile on his face before and after school! He is making friends and gaining confidence. His happiness means everything to us. Faculty, teachers, parents and even the other students are kind, warm and helpful. We don`t feel as we gave up anything academically, and we have gained a family, and a whole new world for our son. Thank you DKJA!

DKJA is an exceptional school. My children are receiving a great education and more. The school offers everything from a great academic program to extracurriculars. The school's administration and faculty are warm and always ready to go the extra mile. This is a dream school.
