    My son has attended De Sales since 2nd grade and his IQ is way above average. The teachers here know how to push the kids to the best of their ability. I love the small classes and one on one they give to the kids. I feel as if they really care for the children. Three of my nephews attended this school as well I would recommend this school to any parent that want what's best for their child!!! And they do not exclude Christ at this school my sons well being mentally physically and spiritually is well taken care of I have no worries here!

    This used to be a really great school. Now the some of the students and parents are not made to be responsible for the children's actions. Poor parent participation. Some teachers are not made to use Edline or update the homework website. There are certain kids that cause problems repeatedly and are permitted to return year after year. Majority of the teachers are great the office staff is wonderful and loving. I will no longer PAY to send my child to this school.
