26 Parent Reviews for Denver Academy

As another parent said, you have to be realistic about your child's learning methods and it is a hard thing to do. I've had my kids in some of the top rated schools and it did do harm. A tutor once said, "if a kid develops a hate for school, you can never get that love back." That's true, unless ...  Read more

Denver Academy has been a great place for my son. The teachers "get" him and he enjoys going to school. Every year he has been placed with a teacher that fits his learning style. If he weren't at Denver Academy, I have no doubt that he would have failed out by now. I'm so glad we found Denver Academy!

Not at ...  Read more

Denver Academy is 100% amazing, my son has never passed a class in regular education - even with re mediated course work. He had to take anxiety medication just to make it through the day. He now since beginning school in August is functioning at grade level and doing well- he is doing this completely ...  Read more

The best school for any child who needs an education outside the box. For four years my sons teachers have always been extraordinary; his current homeroom teacher has a masters degree in literature. They bend over backward to provide exactly the encouragement, accommodations, and motivation that each ...  Read more
