    "I know there has been some problems with high administrative turnover and confusion in the past. This is clearly PAST. My child is thriving at this school and it is clearly evident that everyone at the school cares deeply about an individual's child development. I especially appreciate the differentiated learning opportunities. We are so happy with our experience here and the possibilities that exist within regular D20 that we dis-enrolled our youngest from (one size fits all) TCA in order for him to attend TdVA. As the previous post stated, this is a wonderful environment that caters to all styles. It is clear that the school continues to nurture my child's love of learning. My child cannot wait to go to school in the morning to learn more and to spend time at TdVA."

    "When our kids started at TdVA 2 years ago we were apprehensive. It is our neighborhood school and, new to the county, had no idea about choice enrollment. Had we, our children would have missed out on this incredible school. From the moment you walk into this school a sense of warmth and community abounds. The front desk staff is spectacular and teachers are passionate and devoted. The CURRENT administration is out of this world. I am here multiple times per week volunteering and am able to witness firsthand the wonders of this school. As an art integrated school, the arts is a primary focus but it doesn't take the place of core academic learning and I think that is a point that should be stressed as there have been misconceptions as to the mission of this school. Core academics are reiterated through the arts. TdVA's not PERFECT. IE staff turnaround is high. I feel the current principal is going to stick around awhile (which is fabulous because so is she) and I I could see the revolving door trend end because of the stable administration. Foreign language program is disappointing. And they call PE movement. Wonderful academic school that caters to ALL learning styles"

    "We moved from a D-49 Charter school to a home in D-20 in 2011. My daughter is wait listed at TCA and while waiting for her wait list to clear we enrolled her at DaVinci for the 2011-2012 school year in 2nd grade. I was concerned about DaVinci since I had received some bad feedback from other parents I know, however I have to say we have been pleasantly surprised. I love her teacher, and she asks me how my daughter is liking school when I am in the classroom volunteering. My daughter seems to really enjoy school and is disappointed if she is sick or there is a snow day on days when she has a special class like drama or art. I enjoy the diversity of subjects that are discussed in the classroom and the fact that holidays are still recognized such as Christmas and Halloween. I am very impressed with the pick up/drop off line and the priority of safety placed on the children during this process. I have found the administration to be professional and courteous. I am convinced that my daughter is thriving in this school because of the type of learning style encouraged. Students are encouraged to be responsible for their own work. We are pleased and might just keep her here."

    "My child has attended this school for 4 years. In the 4 years we have seen tremendous changes, good & not so great, & a revolving door in administration (3rd principal now). We've seen some great teachers that have been absolutely incredible for our child's learning, and some that we wonder if they got their license and degree online from an outsourced trade school. While we were dazzled (our child & us as parents) by what da Vinci encompassed when our child began, we have seen our child removed from TAG and special advanced opportunities even though he scores higher than the other children in all areas of testing including the CSAP. They do not have enough qualified teachers to work with gifted kids. Expect no communication from science as to why your child gets the grade s/he gets - no matter how many requests, messages or calls left. If your child doesn't fit "the mold", expect them to lose special opportunities no matter how high they score on tests, homework or treat others with respect. Expect mountains of homework. The art program is great. Kathy, at the front keeps the school in tact. Great school if your kid is average & not needing/wanting much structure or challenge"

    "My 3 kids have attended this school and so far it's been great. We have been with this school since it first opened so we have seen alot of change. Our oldest has started middle school at a different school and continues to excel. Again, it's not for everyone but all the teachers and administrators know my 3 kids names. it's a welcoming, learning and caring environment."
