I went to Divine Child High School from 1995-1999. My sister graduated from here in 1996. It's a Catholic school but there were non-Catholic's there as well. In my four years of high school I took a good variety of classes. I like that they actually have a requirement to take a fine art and an applied art because those are subjects my public school friends didn't really take. I got to try out Drafting, Interior Decorating, Drawing, Design and Crafts. You will also take a religion or "values" class every semester. You won't just learn about the Catholic religion, but also about outside religions. The teachers were very committed to the students and they tried to work with each student as necessary to help them learn the material.

They had sports teams like all schools, but during my four years there were no major championships except with the Pom team (which my sister was in) and the Color Guard team (which I was in)... so if you are looking for sports, this might not be the place. However if you are looking for education, this is it! When I went to college I found I was ahead of a lot of my classmates when it came to math and science since I had already learned so much in high school. The high school uses a tougher grading scale where 95 is an A. I left the school with a 3.4 average which is pretty good if you consider the tougher scale.

Finally, there are many clubs even though I didn't participate as much as I wish I had. I did join the Spanish club for multiple years and we visited many local restaurants, the DIA, and saw some spanish plays. Almost everyone was in some kind of club because it was basically the best way to find others who shared your interests.

I have always been proud to say I went to Divine Child because it is a good school and all the jobs I've ever worked at have told me it's a great school to have on your resume. The only real downside is that it cost quite a bit and the prices tend to go up over the years - but if you can afford it, your kids will come out with a great education and you'll find it's worth the investment.

PROS: Great education, good values
CONS: A little pricy

I decided after my older two children went thru the Dearborn Heights public school system, that my youngest would be starting out at DC. My DS is still in the public schools and won't switch....but I'm not happy about it.

I couldn't be any happier with DC!

The structure and discipline makes for a fantastic learning environment. My DD is thriving and doing so much better than my other 2 children did in public school. I know a lot of people will argue that private schools are no better - but I really have to disagree having experienced it from both sides. If you don't have control of your students, how are they going to learn??
I had a teacher at Crestwood HS tell me last night at conferences that his class is more about "crowd control" than about learning. What???

Thumbs up to DCES!

PROS: Fantastic, faith-based learning environment
CONS: Can be expensive, but no more expensive than surrounding Catholic schools.
