I would rate Dawn Treader a 5-star! Though the school is small...it offers great BIG standards of excellence and expectation. During the times we're living in today, the importance of a strong biblical foundation is important to keep sane. The teacher's make up 1/3 of the whole concept of teaching

The Teacher's at DTCS are to be applauded for their Spirit of excellence, care and concern. They have planed good Godly seed, into the harvest. Unfortuanately, there is always some seed that scatter and fall to the wayside. All those who represent DTCS...continue in that which you were called faithfully, and watch God produce a good harvest! Thank You for planting good seed into my children and currently grandchild who now attends. Read less

... Read more involvement is pretty much the only thing going on here. The teachers are good, especially Mrs.Young and Mrs. Simms. Some teachers had their own views that could easily be questioned. I would only send my kids their for proper biblical training. Not for academics. Let them go to public schools and learn what every other kid is learning, so they can be on the same level as highschool freshmen and so on. Read less
