    I used to attend this school when I was a lot younger and now I'm practically grown but while I was there the teachers were loving and caring and they focused on areas that you could improve in. In order to make you better they tested your strategies they made you think and helped you learn easily and efficiently.

    I am happy with the school as of right now. We have had one teacher who didn't seem to click with our child but other then that the teachers have been great. They do need more services for the children with difficultys. My child has ADHD and there are no services there to help him at all.

    I have a child that started this school and was isolated from the rest of class due to behavior problems. I was not informed exactly how serious right away. They also ruinned our Christmas. Because by this time they just seemed to want rid of her and treat another child that was understanding and was helping my child with a differentance than before. They do not offer any special accomendations for children with behavior problems as they do offer accomendations for other severely handicap children. Just go ahead and contact DSS if your child is here and has behavior problems. they will for you no matter how hard and fast you are trying to get your child help.

    My child had been attending Davenport A+. We had a great amount of trouble there with the staff (certain members) and the curriculum. My daughter has since transferred to Lower Creek and is doing wonderfully. She has a super teacher and the principal has a great relationship with the students and the parents. I would reccomend it to anyone who wants a more friendly and less harsh environment than Davenport without losing any of the educational skills.
