    "This is a good school and we would have really liked to stay but another option opened up. When we listed the positives of both options, there was no comparison. We couldn't see how DESA would prepare our child for next level. The primary concern (for DESA) seems to be maintaining the high pass rate on the various standardized tests and it seems as though too much time is spent bringing children "up to speed". So if you've got a child already "at or above speed" there isn't much offered for them, no gifted studies, no accelerated studies, no Language studies, and no Orchestra are offered. The Administration and Staff are rock solid professionals and offer great customer service. The Principal was very approachable and friendly. I never had a second thought about my child's safety and well being."

    "this school is great for your little actor/singer/artist or musician. although starting in 4th grade you have to pick from the arts and one specialize in 2 (BUMMER) BUT my kid loves the violin teacher and the art teacher Ms Warner. I wish this school recycled though, doesn't seem to have a idea of running a green school, the cafeteria trays are made out of Styrofoam ewwwww and when you ask if there is a recycling bin you get looked at strangely . green it up DESA seriously"

    "Great school. I as a grandparent am concerned about the bullying that goes on there. My granddaughter has been a student there since 1st grade. She is now in 3rd grade. She has been bullied since she started. This issue of bulling has not been addressed school-wide. Maybe individually- of the whole school. Great school. Let's get on the ball DESA! Our kids are depending on us and you."
