  • i agree with all of these. it was a simply terrible school. as mentioned, the (...) teacher will get in your ear and yell at you for simply nothing, the (...) will make her own little rules as she pleases. like some things aren't even in the rule book and she adds them simply if shes got a freakin PMS i assume. the school has a nice gym but really the rest of the school is in bad shape. oh and they send like every kid to the "Centers" Like all the time it seems. for dumb stuff like maybe a quote they write,or a drawing,or even something stupid they may have said. or a simple scratch a cat did on your arm they send you to that (...). it would really be a very terrible experience to send your child there. i switched to Riverland Baptist Christian Academy (not the one next to DMS) and it is wonderful. if you got the money i would recommend sending your child there. i only stayed for the first quarter at DMS totally terrible there. i am almost in 7th grade now

  • "F" in Science teacher only. Very good school except in Science. the teacher should be in another profession, maybe student or secretary, etc. I have always been a believer of "If the trainee didn't learn, THE TRAINER DIDN'T TRAIN". This holds true for teachers also. If the teacher doesn't have the time, training, expertise, or goal to teach, they are in the wrong profession.
