    "Our granddaughter, who attended a private school through fifth grade, began her public school experience at DSMS. She is currently in 8th grade and, as former educators, we can say without exception, that each year has provided an amazing array of learning experiences, unique opportunities and teaches who had the knowledge, talent and skill to make lerning compelling, exciting and engaging. We have attended school programs, athletic events and even read some of the books she has been assigned for summer reading. As a parent, grandparent and university-level educator, we could not have wished for a better faculty, curriculum, learning environment and social experience. ."

    "Good things- DSMS has pretty good teachers who teach as well as they possibly can. You have a pretty good choice of electives and all are sucessful. Lots of oppertunities and above average test scores. Bad things-A big problem is over crowding. With 3 elementry schools in the district you would think they would be planning a new middle school soon, but they are not. Teachers are being laid off so the classes will grow even bigger. Hallways are very crowded and uncomfortable. You have a lot of cussing and innapropriate remarks around every corner. The teachers really are tired and just turn a blind eye to it. There have been incidents with drugs, but it has only been with a small group of people who don't seem to be pressuring people outside of their group."

    "DS oldtimers run this district to it's detriment. Teachers do not care anymore. The kids that act out the loudest, get the most attention. I have seen on numerous occasions where the students that want to learn have to sit out in the hallway to limit their distractions from the classroom. Drugs are pretty rampent in this district. The administration and staff seems to turn a blind eye. Also, bullying, which is supposed to have a zero tolerance (as well as drugs) is blown over. This district needs a serious wake-up call. DSISD can not decid if they want to be a one-horse town or continue with the growth for the betterment of the community. I know numerous parents who have taken their children out of the district to homeschool. All you have to do is to look at the turnover rate with teachers and you will know the story."
