    "My daughter will not start at DSA until the start of next year and I might possibly have a different opinion then, but here is the research I have done. When you go to the Colorado Department of Education Website and look at the CSAP comparisons, you will see that DSA is really second to no other public school in the district. They even beat out science and technology on most scores. At the acceptance meeting we went to in the spring they talked extensively about how they plan on meeting the state eduction budget cuts. All of their next years budget is going to faculty and they guaranteed that no class size will exceed 28. Coming from Jeffco where my daughter's next year class size is looking closer to 40, I am thrilled. We are going to have to pay higher fees for materials, but personally I would rather do that, then have staff reductions. The principal was very adament that BOTH accedemic and artistic GPA had to be maintained, or your child would be asked to not return the following year. Again, I am thrilled. Most students are expected to be in the honors programs and high expectations in all areas are standard. This school far exceeds any area public school I have seen"

    "In the first few years, we were ecstatic about the possibilities for our very creative, gifted & talented / exceptionally intelligent & caring young guy at DSA. 7 yrs later-not so sure. The teachers range from incredible to absolutely terrible, with incredible in the serious minority. Since we started at DSA, it's slipped down on the CSAP rankings, even though they relentlessly teach to the test. I wouldn't rank academics as excellent, but merely sufficient. Our kid has suffered academically due to the way things are there. I put the blame on some rotten apple teachers as well as a couple of terrible principals (the current is an upgrade). Arts Majors: where the problem lies. with so much demand placed on the students that their academics suffer. Academia & arts depts don't coordinate well. We're always fighting for excused absences & makeup work due to the rampant disorganization. The different arts DO NOT cross-pollinate AT ALL. If you're in vocal, then you're in vocal. If you're in theater, then, you're there ONLY. It seems there's a cabal of over-excited parents who wish to live vicariously through their children. The same could be said of some of the arts teachers also."

    "When my son was accepted at Denver School of the Arts my biggest concern was that the academics may not be the best. I was happily mistaken. DSA consistently rates Excellent or High in the standardized state tests and they have a 99% graduation rate. More schools should incorporate arts and academics. This combination produces well rounded, intellegent, cultured and interesting young people."

    "Great school for the arts, by Denver standards. But, if your child is academically advanced, consider a private alternative for arts training and a better HS>"

    "Can't say enough good things about DSA. My childs first year there has been the best possible educational exeprience I could have hoped for."
