From Our Students & Families


I love the positive reinforcement and individualized recognition the students receive. It really makes them feel good and want to succeed.

The small class sizes allow for individual attention and allows the children to build close relationships.

We feel very fortunate to be a part of the DaVinci family. Our child is getting an education he can’t get at any other school around the area.

We have found DaVinci Academy to be a wonderful environment for both learning and excelling. Our children  love to go to school and are very proud to tell others about their school.

The teaching staff is phenomenal – I’ve never seen more dedication, care, or personal involvement at any other school my children have attended.

DaVinci has been the perfect balance between a “big school” with tons of resources and a “little school” with lots of parental involvement.

Our kids are doing great academically, the teachers are wonderful and have provided the gentle guidance and extra help when necessary.
