Downsville gets better and better each year; with quality teachers and an open learning atmosphere. With the school being fairly small, character is promised. Every body seems to know each of their peers, defeating any unwanted bullying or hate. My favorite part of attending DCCS is the help you receive from teachers. The teachers truly care for the future of their students and they want us all to succeed.

It’s a decent school. I’ve been attending since kindergarten, and they’ve improved dramatically throughout the years, and are only going to improve more. The school itself is expanding, and in the near future there will certainly be an expansion to house all of the students.
(My boyfriend goes here (he's a senior with almost to none's worth of college readiness) (and he has four classes) he tells me all the time that this is one of the worst schools he has gone to. He says the teachers barely pay attention and some don't even review past contents for him. None get the students ready for college by what I heard. It's a school that really just teaches " stuff" nothing else. lack of money donations and money guidance (the school has been almost shut down plenty of times. the poor kids that go there usually got fit into groups and bully the other groups, changing some kids emotionally for the worst. it's just a big ole mess of a building that needs to be changed.
