Dana was amazing! The teachers there help me grow a lot and they are excellent. It’s very clean and safe there. It’s full of amazing people, though they could change a few teachers.

Supportive teachers helped me nurture the school newspaper program and create a weekly broadcast program; most teachers I had really did love their subjects, I could tell! I also really loved the Psycho Runner challenge in PE each year; it gave me a goal for a mile time.
The only thing I would change about my experience at this school would be the fact that Dana had the stereotypical middle school social hierarchy when I attended a few years ago, but that's on the kids, not the school itself.
