Not productive in helping students and notifying parents if child is struggling or behind. They do not help the child succeed or any tools in place to give the students the ability to be successful.
Wonderful teachers, wonderful environment. My kids are learning a lot and enjoying it!
Awesome, the staff is great! All 3 of our sons loved going there and the extra curricular activities really exposed them to things and ideas that we couldn't get at Anacapa. CAD, Advanced Coding, Solar Panels, Aquaponics, Solar Race Cars, Drones, 3D Printers, exposure to different languages like Spanish, Arabic, ASL and German, this school is the best. The way the staff dictates culture at the school, as opposed to letting the kids dictate culture, was refreshing. They effectively handle bullying and take an approach that not only ensures accountability but also key ways at implementing conflict resolution, all while making sure that the child's enthusiasm toward learning isn't interrupted or diminished. My kids were in GATE classes and there was a big difference between the way students viewed and valued academics at each school. DATA students looked at it as valuable, while Anacapa students tended to look at it as being dorky. I also noticed that at Anacapa the teaching staff tended to be more highly tenured and as a result, less receptive to the changes in learning that are constantly happening. Some teachers at Anacapa refused to email, which was shocking. We love and highly recommend DATA to everyone that asks what we think based on our experiences at both schools. DATA gets an A+ in our book!
This school is amazing. The teachers care for students in a way that is incomparable to other schools that my children have been to over the years. My daughter loves school and looks forward to going every day. The staff welcome the students everyday and make the school feel like home. The computers DO MATTER and really help my daughter learn. My child is learning things that you cant learn at most schools like how to build a drone from scratch or how to use a laser engraver to create beautiful art. What other school can your child compete in Aspire, a competition in which you can create a business idea and actually pitch it to judges and the public? Or what other school can your child learn how to solder or how to write computer code? Overall, I would recommend this school over and over again because in my eyes, it is truly wonderful.
