Dillard Drive Middle School Reviews

I enjoyed much of the time I had here. The teachers were overall great, but I personally suggest a demanding of a higher level of discipline in some classrooms; in some classes, the students really get out of hand. There's really not much to say about DDMS other than how it's an overall good school. I'd really suggest more ensuring a deeper level of understanding of topics in classes, since some classes are very memorization-based.

I actually enjoyed every bit of attending at this school. My teachers were friendly and wanted what's best for us, and never gave up on any of their students. My favorite experience was that some times we had class outside when its warm and clear out. We get done our work and relaxed outside. It wasn't like others schools because it felt like we were a team. We planted a garden to donate food to shelters, and my favorite teacher identified an unnotified object in space with four of my classmates. My teacher and classmates was invited to NASA and gave a report while the rest of us watched them on the news, it was amazing. I would chose this school again because of all the wonderful experiences I've had, I had an amazing time attending this school being part of a team. And I'd never take it back for even a second.
There is a variety of academics this school offer and the teacher are always there to help you and encourage you to do your very best. Teachers do have coach classes if students need help. There are some who do study groups to help each other out. I my self tutor some of my struggling class mates. I would think most of my peers enjoy learning different languages. We have Japanese, Chinese, Spanish and French. We might have more but those were the ones I know from the top of my head. Next year this school will be a light house school and Owings mills is the school for people that font understand English too.
