    "I really enjoy attending this school. I have been here for 2 years and it's soooo much better than my previous school. I have made several friends and I feel very safe here. The teachers are very nice, and I know the school work is harder but they are preparing me for college!"

    "very rigorous and impossible to pass unless you have lots of time to study and the necessary dedication to pass."

    "Your child must have the ability and maturity to learn on his/her own and keep up with the fast-paced workload. I finally will be pulling them next year, going to either private or a charter school. Unfortunately it has declined over the years. There are some major issues that need resolution. It just does not have the ability to provide an education for children anymore. To be honest, I think the school is putting more effort on a fake reputation, then the education and development of the children. My children have said for a long time that when visitors come to inspect what is going on they have to act as if nothing is wrong. With the increase of violence, lack of guidance, ridiculous class sizes (70+ students in the electives, I am not exaggerating!) and a large amount of students failing this school does not get my recommendation anymore. It is sad as they really have a great program for the medical arts. Please do your research, call the school board, ask about the dropout rate or how many students request to go back to their neighborhood schools. You would be shocked. These are not students that are unintelligent, etc. Many go from 4.0 GPAs to failing."

    "Not exactly the best school ever, although perhaps good compared to some other schools. Some of the teachers are alright, but others either don't teach or don't seem to care. A lot of the better teachers and staff are leaving, though, and DC needs more clubs and the such. Also, to me there is too much focus on "medical" (so that students are watching bloody surgeries in 7th grade) and not enough on other aspects, which is why DC can't ever get past JWJ in competitions. Some of the teachers can be nice, though some of the kids aren't so great. That said, some of the kids and some of the teachers are also good, though DC isn't as good as I wanted it to be. And though it might not be the best school, there's still separation between Gifted and other students, and it has a magnet program, and it's still better than a lot of schools. It may be easier than JWJ for the middle school, though there aren't as many opportunities. There are also fewer sports available, and not as much school spirit as I'd like to see, perhaps because many of the people aren't being satisfied."
