Dehesa Charter School is the perfect fit for my family. We have been with Dehesa for the past three years and have the best facilitator around.

DCS was founded on great ideals yet it lacks the leadership to properly implement them.

Great school except it lacks a great on-site high school math program. As long as you provide your own math, you will be alright at this school. Otherwise, keep looking.

We have been with Dehesa Charter School for 4 years, and I could not be happier with all aspects of this school! We have two boys (2nd and 6th grade) and they actually look forward to school and our monthly meetings with our amazing Educational Facilitator! In fact, every EF we have met has been nothing ...  Read more

I cannot say enough about the positive experience my family has had with Dehesa Charter School. The entire program is brilliant, a dream opportunity for my four homeschooled children. My kids thrive in the classes, feeling more like they are spending time with family than stcuk in a classroom. The teachers ...  Read more
