    "I thought I was the only one who had to deal with the messy lottery process with selecting students but after reading the review, I see I'm not the first or the last. I experienced first-hand their inconsistencies and partiality in their lottery and re-enrollment practices. I believe that some kids are favored over others and their student selection process is not totally objective. They change methods to suit their needs and that is not putting the education of a student first."

    "This school is mediocre at best. The teachers are actually alright, but the administration is not. It seems they run good teachers away every year. The principles are arrogant and ignorant and they do not provide good support to the teachers. The board is weak and do not check the administration. Look deeply before sending your child here. Appearances can be deceiving. I am pulling my child."

    "D.A.T.E is an excellent school. After reading a few of the posts below, I was compelled to respond. The lunch program is an option that is presented to the parents in advance. The price is very reasonable for a catered lunch. I agree that the curriculum needs to be more challenging. However, in my 6 years as a D.A.T.E. parent, I notice that parents complain when the curriculum/teacher is more demanding and kids receive the grades that they earned instead of the inflated grades that we see in South Dekalb County as a whole. We need to stop making excuses for unruly kids. Kids need to understand that there is a time to play and there is a time to listen and learn. I The kids are taught to obey rules and if a child cannot or will not obey rules, then this a school choice, and a parent has the right to remove the child and place them in a school with less structure. The school is not perfect but the administrators work hand in hand with the parents to encourage growth. In South Dekalb, the students have taken over the schools. DATE has the correct approach. Let the teachers, administration, and parents run the schools. If DATE isn't for you...then you have other options."

    "This school is a joke. I entered my son in the lottery process with all paperwork completed. A week after the lottery was conducted I recieved an email stating that he was accepted. The very next morning I recieved an email stating that he was not accepted after all. My husband and I were confused and sent an email to the headmaster, admissions counseler, and elementary prinicpal. No reply. I finally called two days later to find out he was on the waiting list (from the clerk who refused to let me speak with the admissions counseler). Then he was called up from the waiting list. Since then it has been an awful experience. The front desk is quite rude and very unprofessional (putting it lightly). I emailed the admissions counseler and she did not email back. My husband and I are seriously having doubts about placing him in this school. I read the other reviews prior to applying to the lottery and still wanted to give the school a chance. Now, I know what they (the other reviewers) are talking about. When someone or something shows you who they are BELIEVE them. My child will not be attending this school because of it's messy behavior. I will take my chances elsewhere."

    "good school but stills needs work. i think that the school is run to much like a busness. think that they should let the kids have a little more freedom but at the same time they need *-teacher that the kids like. i do think that they need a better lunch program. and i am sick of my oldest getting bullied by the same kid. that kid need to be kicked out. but all in all it is a great school better then the public ones around here."
