School Reviews

I have 2 children who attend Academy Del Sol in Star Valley. They have been attending there since it has open. I feel that it is a great school. It is like other schools were it may need work on. Like the parking lot. It gets crazy during drop off and pick up time. But, the blame is on the Parents not the school!! The school has tried over and over again to make it better, but parents don't help in anyway!! If you plan on sending your children to Academy Del Sol, them you better be ready to work!! This school pushes the students too work hard and too learn. It is sad that Parents don't care enough, and they end up taking their children out of the school. There is a lot of work in school and a lot of homework. But, my children know so much more then I did at their age!! I have a son who has learning disability , and is doing better there then at his old school with TUSD.
