Chosing this school for my daughter was the best oportunity for her education. Not only is a Christian school but also the fact that the kids grow together from grade to grade, completing all the school years from 5K to 12. As a parent I'm very involved in her education and daily progress and having the option to volunteer with class activities has the advantages of meeting all the DCS staff and teachers. The classes are small so there is more time for the teachers to spend with each student. Thank you DCS for all you do!

My great granddaughter has just finished her first year at Downey. She spent 4 years struggling in public school to being on the honor roll all year. She loves the school and has made such dramatic changes in her confidence and emotional levels. It's amazing at the differences in her. Love Love the school.
