We just completed our third year with NDAA as part of the lower school. We are not Adventists, but enjoy the family atmosphere and strong academic program. The classes are much smaller than public school and allow for one-on-one instruction when needed and the classes engage in almost monthly field trips and other community activities. I like that the teachers know the parents and that there are opportunities for parents to participate in activities that span the lower school - so we get to meet teachers before our child enters their classroom. The principals and staff are friendly and engaged with the students - creating a great learning environment for both academic and personal growth. Overall, we have been happy with the experience and plan to continue our enrollment.

Our family has been very impressed with North Dallas Adventist Academy. The teachers and staff are exceptional. They truly care about all the children and preparing them to be successful academically and as contributing members in society. There is no tolerance for bullying allowing kids to reach their full potential without fearing their school environment or students. They have a wonderful music department and both our children enjoy their music lessons and music programs. Christian values are woven throughout the school and are taught hand in hand with their lessons. The staff and teachers lead by example making this school a wonderful environment for our children. If your are considering private school, you will love being a part of the NDAA family.

Our 3 children have attended NDAA since Pre-K, and they've made excellent progress academically, musically, and socially. The tenets of Christian faith and life are interwoven throughout the lessons, building strong bonds of friendship and camaraderie amongst the students. NDAA is a truly remarkable school!

We are very grateful to be part of NDAA family. The teachers are very well prepared, patient and kind, all the administration department is very efficient and always helpful and the principal is continuing working on develop and improving school in every aspect. Students have the opportunity to learn to play at least one musical instrument, and also sing in the choir, participate in one of the school sport teams, attend one or all of the clubs like robotics, chess, math, science or ukulele. And last but not least, this school does not accept bullying at all. They are lead by faith in God, and teach our children the most important lessons in life: to be kind to each other, to serve, to love, to pray, to help, to be best version of themselves. And this makes us cherish every moment that our child is in their hands.

North Dallas Adventist Academy is among the top Seventh-day Adventist schools in Texas. I cannot say enough good things about the teachers. They are caring and compassionate individuals who really want the students to be successful, they are incredibly knowledgeable and are more than willing to help if you are willing to learn.
