    "As another parent said, you have to be realistic about your child's learning methods and it is a hard thing to do. I've had my kids in some of the top rated schools and it did do harm. A tutor once said, "if a kid develops a hate for school, you can never get that love back." That's true, unless you attend DA. This school is completely devoted to teaching in however method works best for your child. They do care and will make sure your child understands the material before moving on. There is not a overload of homework. Teachers will not penalize a child for imcomplete homework, due to not understanding the material. They will take time out and go over it instead. They do not tolorate bullying. It does occur, as in any school, but it will be addressed. Sending my kids to DA was the best decision I've ever made. It truly is a caring environment that wants the best for every student."

    "Denver Academy has been a great place for my son. The teachers "get" him and he enjoys going to school. Every year he has been placed with a teacher that fits his learning style. If he weren't at Denver Academy, I have no doubt that he would have failed out by now. I'm so glad we found Denver Academy!"

    "Denver Academy is a school that shows the love of learning. As you walk the campus, you can tell how much the students succeed by the smiles on their faces and the activities they are involved with. Rather they are studying poetry by the pond or understanding the ecosystem on the varying sites on the campus. Denver academy offers as wide variety of ways to learn and help students succeed in their learning."

    "Denver Academy is an amazing school period. I have one child in High School at Denver Academy (DA) and one in public school at Cherry Creek High School. Both are great schools but the faculty, staff, and administration at DA are in another league when in comes to crafting an individual learning plan for each student. The environment at DA is inclusive, friendly, like a family. Students show respect for each other and their teachers. I know several recent DA graduates and they are doing well in college and in life. DA is expensive but without the kind of individualized learning experience DA has given my child he never would have made it through High School. My child is extremely smart, yet public schools don't have the knowledge or inclination to educate a child with ADD and a processing disorder. Best of all the philosophy at DA is that home work is the responsibility of the student and the teacher NOT THE PARENT. That alone is worth the tuition."

    "Denver Academy is life changing. In one quarter, my daughter's anxiety, depression, migraines, and stomach aches she has had the last 6yrs literally disappeared. When her ADD was not properly addressed in school, these problems arose, worsened to the point that the idea of school made her physically sick. DA gave her the space to grow and learn without pressure and to truly help her learn in ways she connected to - she thrived. She has gone from hating school to wanting to be there. From hating homework to somewhat enjoying it. Most importantly there is hope for a bright future as her grades improve and she learns to challenge herself. I also personally love being a parent at this welcoming, communicative, and extremely friendly school. They welcome input, advice, and ideas. The staff is bright, creative, laid back, and truly gets kids with learning differences like no other place on earth. I have learned more in free parent support groups and school sponsored educational nights that I have in years of therapy. I feel so lucky to live in Colorado - so that my daughter can have this amazing educational experience that will last a lifetime!"
