The vision of Dove Science Academy, (DSA) in Oklahoma City is to provide students with a solid education within a healthy atmosphere. This vision led me to take a leap of faith and attend the school that ultimately prepared me for success. Before DSA, I attended one of the lowest-ranked schools in Oklahoma. After two years, my parents and I decided that it was time to pursue a school known for its excellence: Dove Science Academy. The moment I realized I was one of the eight people accepted into the Class of 2017, my mind was filled with ecstasy. Little did I know that I was about to embark on a challenging but life-changing experience.
