    "When reading these reviews, please take the ones written by kids with a grain of salt. As a parent ,I have found the most recent principal,Mr. Manfre, to be much more reasonable and approachable than the previous principal. He responds quickly to parent concerns and is eager to resolve issues.As far as Mr. Jordan for math, he was my daughter's favorite and most challenging math teacher,she has gone on to be at the top of her high school class,and though she does not LIKE math she excells in it .Perhaps the child who had complaints about him does not like to work hard and be challenged. This school has something for every child, challenging academics,excellent music,performing and visual arts opportunities,compassionate and knowledgable sports coaches, engineering team,playwrites class,character building classes and clubs... the list is too numerous to go on. It's like everywhere,if you have a child who wants to do well, they will flourish at DHMS !"

    "I am a parent of an 8th grader at DHMS. I will say it has been tough for him because of bullying; however the principal and teachers have always taken care of any situation I have approached them about. Most of the teachers are caring and understanding and doing the best that they can considering the handful of kids that seem to have no interest in being in school and lost of interest in causing problems and getting in trouble, but I believe that it starts at home. If you dont teach your children right from wrong and proper behavior at home they certainly arnt going to know it at school which is ashame for the other kids."

    "As a student currently in DHMS, I can safely say that the school is great. The problem in the school isn't the staff or the curriculum, it's the students. There are a lot of good kids in the school, but unfortunately, just as many (if not more) of us act out all the time. Because of this, they don't learn much at school and the kids who actually are interested need to hear the teachers constantly disciplining the students (to no avail) and deal with the same material being drilled into their heads even though they learned it 2 years ago. The school really isn't at fault here. They do provide great activities for the students. Our musical program is top notch, with so many different areas to get involved in (many singing programs, a few band programs including orchestra, a yearly musical), quite a lot of sports for all grades and both genders (inter-mural sports for 6th graders and interscholastic for 7th and 8th), and various other extracurricular activities. As a child in the gifted program, I can say that it is very helpful to academically advanced kids. Unfortunately, there isn't much else for gifted kids. Students can be in an advanced math program with high enough scores."

    "I am currently in 8th grade @ dhms and i ma loving every second. Only problem is the new principal mr manfre. He is not involved in the school and has taken away all of the that our former principal mr ross set for us. i pity the students coming in next year because they will have to deal with this terrible principal. The last problem is Mr. Mark Jordan... pray your child does not have him for math in 8th grade. he teaches and talks way too quickly. other than that, good school overall. would highly reccomend it"

    "I just want to say I am very grateful to have MOVED AWAY. The teachers are somewhat "decent", though many spend more time having to discipline the class instead of focusing their energy to teach. There's also alot of bullying and discrimination that also goes on within the school and the principal shows no empathy and seems to neglect many of these cases. Test scores are also pretty poor and many of the classes focus on reviewing and re-teaching the same PSSA material year round when that time could actually be put to use. If you want to provide what's best for your child, there are plenty of outstanding districts in the surrounding area."
