    "The Donavan School has been everything I hoped it could be! It has a caring and supportive staff run by a very involved and gifted principal. I am looking forward to another wonderful year for my daughter now in second grade and I feel so very fortunate to have found such a fantastic group of educators in my quiet family community!"

    "I am looking to move out of district specifically because of the education my child is receiving at LDS. I feel as though I receive more fundraisers home than I do anything educational. I am not raising a salesperson. I simply want the best education for my child. Although my child is an above-average child and is excelling, I do not feel he is being challenged enough. There are areas that he has asked for additional help in even though his teacher states that he is doing just fine. Because I feel I have hit a wall in regard to communication within LDS, I have instead provided my child with a tutor to give him the extra confidence and 1:1 on attention that his current teacher cannot provide due to (what I consider) overcrowding in the classroom. I'd prefer to move him to a private school where the student to teacher ratio is kept smaller to allow for more individualized attention."
