    "This is a wonderful school. My daughter is in pre-K and loves it! Miss Lindsay is amazing and I could not be happier with my daughter's overall experience."

    "I'm an 8th grader at DCS, and the past 4 years at this school have been amazing! Almost all my teachers were the best (although 4 of them don't teach at this school anymore). I've learned so much. Because this school uses the Montessori method, DCS lets you work at your own pace, but if you're behind, they'll help. The teachers really do care about the students, and after having one teacher for at least 2 years, that teacher becomes more than just a teacher; he or she becomes one of your best friends. They encourage a lot of teamwork and really want you to do your best. Students are given a lot of responsibility at a young age, but by 8th grade, they've got it down. This school isn't completely perfect, but they're pretty darn close. This place became my second home. I love DCS, and I'm going to be so sad when I leave, but I know that I've gotten an amazing education and had great experiences I will never forget. Go Cougars! (Note: Not everyone that you talk to will have the same thing to say about this school, but I promise that if you look for the good, you'll get good.)"

    "We Love DCS Montessori! The principal, the teachers and the teacher's assistants are attentive, highly educated, sincerely interested in each student, and treat the children with kindness & respect. DCS fosters a love of learning and provides each student the ability to excel as far as they want to in any given subject, unlike traditional public schools. That being said, our children are 2 grades ahead in math and 3 grades ahead in reading. The school is attentive to the needs of the students and any parent requests. The principal is a dedicated, respected leader and has the best interest at heart for the students and the school. DCS recently added a middle school, which proves to me, once again, their unending dedication to providing the best opportunities for the students. I couldn't recommend a better school. The school is organized, peaceful and pleasant. The children are taught not only the normal subjects required by a school, but are also taught how to be leaders and to be honest, kind and thoughtful. DCS fosters the love of learning and creative, independent thought. I can't say enough great things about DCS."

    "Such a great school! The teachers are amazing and my daughter loves it there! It amazes me what my 5 year old is learning especially multiplication in kindergarten! A traditional neighborhood school would have never kept her interest like this school does. Her teacher is amazing with communication and making sure all of the students are learning in true Montessori fashion. They instill a passion for life-long learning which is key to me. We feel fortunate to be a part of the DCS Montessori family!"

    "We have been here for 2.5 years so far and we love it. Every school has its issues but when you go to the principle here, Mr. Jeromy takes the problem seriously and does not just feed you the party line. He takes care of whatever issue it may be. We have had 3 excellent teachers and 3 Aides that really take the time to get to know my children. I love the fact that my child will be pushed to make improvement rather than hanging along at the state level. They have moved grade levels because they can work to their potential rather than waiting -bored- for everyone to catch up. At this school they are ability grouped and tested year long to make sure they are in the right group for them. All in all, I have no major complaints. To state that you wonder how many of the reviews were written by employees is just ridiculous. Any school or business could be doing that. Do you wonder about all of those?"
