    "This school is terrible. Some of the teachers don't even grade the assignments and just leave it there gathering dust for a long time."

    "We have a 6th grader at PDCMS. We've found the school to be very good in many ways. The teachers are great, most will take extra time during lunch or after school to help. The frustrations with the school have been: 1. Our student had a serious illness that made him miss about two weeks of school. Even though he had a Dr. note we still got a letter home stating that any more missed school will not be excused without a Dr. note every time. It would have been nice to be contacted by the school prior to getting the letter. This brings me to my 2nd complaint. There is not sufficient office staff. Unless you are able to do everything online, you'll have a very hard time communicating with the school."

    "This will be year #3 for us. My daughter first year was susposed to drop in grades (that what most say) and she did so well I was so surprised. I am pleased witht he teacher involvement and they really care about MY kid.(and your kids) .MY daughter quickly got involved in the Colorguard group and was able to march with the Band and participate in the Winter guard competitions. I couldn't be more proud of the young Lady she has become and this school really helps develop a childs desire to be part of a community as a whole. I agree with the parents comment on the band program every time we go out I am amazed at the level in which our kids perform. They are completely impressive. If there is a way you could get involved with the school its needed. Volunteering once a day once a week or even once a month."

    "My daughter transferred from another school district last year, where she was in the "Honors" program at another "9" school. She keeps in close contact with her friends at the old school, and she can not believe how far advanced she is in all her classes, compared to the honors class there. More important to me is how all her PDCMS teachers in 6th grade focused on teaching her learning skills...such as organization, time management, and assertiveness...and did so effectively. The extracurriculars are great, and some of the events parents put on outshine anything I've ever seen at a high school. We moved here FOR the schools, and I'm so glad we did."
