Dorris Eaton is not a great school. I went there for five years and graduated in 2004. From the get go, the school does encourage good academics, but the teachers fail to realize that the students don't have the knowledge prior. Everyone is expected to magically attain skills that they do not have and ...  Read more

Dorris-Eaton was honestly the best investment my parents could have made for me. I had a challenging, yet nurturing environment full of talented students and teachers. Yes, it was difficult for some of the kids to keep up, but for me it was perfect because I really needed the challenging academic environment. ...  Read more

My son attends DE since Kindergarten; he enjoys and loves DE very much. My friends are asking me that is the school perfect? Well, it is not. But think about the option that I have in my school district; I don t think my son can thrive if I enroll him into public school. They also ask me: Are the ...  Read more

The difference is the material is much more accelerated. 70% of the 7th graders at DE are taking Algrebra including ...  Read more

The teachers are the only reason why this school is what it is. Your child will be more than prepared for highschool, period. On the other hand, the administration is usually unresponsive. The headmaster is rarely seen by the students, and gives the same old speech every quarter of the year. Also, the ...  Read more

The school's physical site is very sterile, but the size of the field is fantastic. Many books are quite old, and the school is for profit and the primary focus of the Administration is to enroll new students. We found that the school was not a good fit for our family, and it may not be for you if your ...  Read more
