Excellent! I’ve had two children complete middle school at DMS in recent years. I can definitely say that this school has something for everyone! Honors courses, various electives, sports, and any type of club imaginable. Invested teachers, administrators, and coaches who really take the time to get to know each child and family are really what set this school apart though.
