    "The teachers are super nice and help when they can. I think DA has quite a range of teachers from some of the best teachers I have ever met to some of the worst. The older teachers can SOMETIMES be a bit out of it or not quite up to par, but there are plenty of exceptions. And the younger teachers are usually more attentive and better, but there are also exceptions."

    "Yeah, DA has its problems, but every school has its problems. I think that overall it is an amazing place where fantastic relationships are fostered and one can receive a great education. If I had to do it over, I would pick DA every time. The quality of the people - students, faculty, parents - cannot really compare to any other school. The girls are really what make this school great."

    "DA is a really nice, small school. Seniors at DA treat underclassmen a lot better than seniors from other schools do. Students are proactive and supportive, teachers are knowledgeable and dedicated. There's no bullying issue at DA though there might be some gossip or dislike between some girls, but it harms no one. Girls at DA are really smart and hard-working. The student body is pretty "white" but there's absolutely no girls being discriminated. The school building is beautiful but we don't have a gym, nor do we have regular PE classes. Don't come to DA if you're an great athlete. The cafe is really small but it fits everyone. The education is worth much more than the tuition, the school is of great value for such a great education and location."

    "I feel like this school has it's ups and downs. We have a phenomenal education system, but our sports and clubs are lacking. I don't hate the school but I don't love it either. If I could do the process all over knowing what I know now to be honest I honestly don't know wether or not I would pick this school. I don't regret the people I've met or the quality of education I've recieved. For every con to the school there's a pro so I can't fully answer this question without regretting my answer."

    "Dominican Academy not only offers a wide-range of rigorous courses, but it also is a second home for many of its students. The teachers are supportive and genuinely care about the wellbeing and academic success of their students. Teachers always offer extra classes and help sessions if need be and reach out to form relationships with for students. The small class size allows many classes to be discussion based, allowing students to find their voice, develop their own ideas, and express themselves in a well-spoken and educated manner. Personally, I have found great friends and mentors here that I believe are truly singular to Dominican Academy. Students are encouraged to take opportunity of leadership positions and join extracurricular activities, all while gaining valuable global perspectives through study and service. Its the best!"
