Open Quote We moved here from austin Texas with very high expectations from this school. Very quickly we were let down. This school is a tiny prison and the staff is so rude. They don't even recycle. They stand around with they're coffees and basically just guard the hallways. Close Quote

Open Quote Right now we have the best principal, Mrs. Tricia Hassell at our school! She is the most positive, upbeat and loving principal our school has ever had! She has made such a powerful difference in the learning in just 2 years--it is amazing! She greets the kids and families each morning and will always take the time to listen to a comment or concern.

Completely saddened to hear that we will be losing Mrs. Hassell at the end of this school year. She was exactly what DSE needed to keep moving forward as a school! She will be missed greatly! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
