    "Des Moines Christian does a great job of educating children with a christian focus. They have dedicated teachers that love the children. They go the extra mile to help children to excel at the course work. The expectations are high and the homework is much more than the other public schools that I know about."

    "I went to DMC for my last two years of high school, when I moved there all the teachers and students were amazing. They made sure I felt comfortable and welcome. The school helped develop my faith, as well as prepared me for college well. I would recommend attending DMC, I met teachers and students there that I will be close with for the rest of my life."

    "I really like that Des Moines Christian is a Christ-centered environment. There are many resources available to students who are looking to further their relationship with Christ. Also, the teachers care about the well-being of each and every student and go out of their way to help those who may struggle or challenge those who excel. The only thing I would change is the size of the student body. The class sizes are fairly small and we don't have a lot of diversity or awareness of the world outside of DMCS. If we could add more students DMCS would be an even greater school."

    "My child is a junior at DMCS For the most part it is a good school, however, the high school foreign language program is very substandard. They offer Spanish and it is taught in an "immersion" style. The poor students are anything but immersed. They spend most of their day involved in classes and activities that are in English, and 45 minutes per day in Spanish class. That is being immersed in English, not Spanish. They had a good teacher, but he didn't want to teach using this method. The kids also didn't want the song and dance method, as they felt they were actually learning from his style. It's a shame, the one good Spanish teacher and they chase him off."

    "I loved moving to this school, it created a Christian learning environment that has helped me grow in my relationship with God over the past years. Since this school is small it has brought on greater relationships with the students and the teachers. I fell that my school has helped me to become the person I am. I think that Des Moines Christian could do better with more academic opportunities for the students."
