  • The test scores are low. I do not believe they really prove what the students know or what the teachers teach.

  • Well.... this school was overall terrible! The teachers are a majority terrible at teaching, alot of their bad teaching has fallen back on me in highschool, even though im doing ok because ive used my free time at home for working on the subjects that i really need to catch up in, as i was saying though alot of the teachers ended up screwing me over education wise because i mean really i have plans for my life! BTW the foods suck, athletics suck, facilities and school in general suck, but i here they have a new principle so mabye he will change all of that... and if you do send your child to this school i advise to let them take there lunch, i did atleast, because my freinds and i have all gotten food poisening from there

  • SDMS IS A GOOD SCHOOL..OUR 6TH GRADE TEACHERS ARE GREAT U CAN LEARN A LOT BECAUSE THEY DON'T TEACH OUT OF THE BOOK THEY ACTUALLY TELL U HOW SOMETHING IS DONE AND THEY ALWAYS REVIEW WHAT SOME PEOPLE KNOW AND WHAT THEY DON'T KNOW. OUR MATH TEACHER TAUGHT US HOW TO REMEMBER MOST OF OUR MATH BY A DANCE AND THATS HOW I REMEMBER MATH OUR SCIENCE TEACHER,ALSO MY HOMEROOM TEACHER,SHE TALKS TO YOU SO IT DOESN'T MAKE SCHOOL HARD. ALSO HAS MANY ACTIVITIES IN EVERY LESSON AND ALL HER PROJECTS SHE MAKES US DO TEACH U BUT ALSO YOU HAVE FUN WHILE LEARNING. OUR SOCIAL STUDIES TEACHER,SHE MAKES U DO FUN PROJECTS AND SHE TALKS TO U AND SHES GOOD BECAUSE WHEN PEOPLE DISOBEY HER SHE ALWAYS FORGETS ABOUT IT THE NEXT DAY SO SHE DOESN'T HOLD IT AGAINST U NO TEACHER DOES REALLY.I'M NOT SO CRAZY ABOUT THE DRESS CODE THOUGH.BUT THEY HAVE A GOOD REASON TO MAKE US DRESS THAT WAY.SO SDMS IS A GOOD SCHOOL.
