Director's Message

I have been connected to the mission and  vision of the Darrell Lynn Hines Academy (DLH)for the past twenty four years. During this time I served as Teacher, Learning Coordinator, Instructional Leader, Assistant Principal, and currently as Executive Director. It has been an honor serving in these various roles. I’ve cherished every moment and memory that has been created. I have met several  DLH Academy students over recent years who have graduated and have returned to enroll their children in the school which is priceless! The Alumni students have expressed how they remember the love and care shown to them during their time at DLH Academy and they want their child to have that same experience. This is quite humbling.


One of our goals at the Darrell Lynn Hines Academy is to help students know and understand there is nothing they can’t achieve once they put their mind to it. We want each student to know obstacles experienced in life isn’t there to destroy them but can help to build stamina, resilience and perseverance in future situations. I would like to thank our families for entrusting their children into our hands. Our desire is that every family feel connected and empowered to reach their academic goals with their son/daughter.  If we work together as a team there is nothing we can’t accomplish when we do so as a team. I welcome our families to get involve in the school anytime by visiting your son/daughter’s class or joining our Family Involvement Team (F.I.T.).  Together we all win!!!
