  • The school is a community. It takes care of many students who have disfunctional families. There are many children with emotional problems. They find caring adults who support them in the school.

  • Well, I'm an 8th grade student at this school, and while it may have some problems, it is also a really good school for different reasons. The teachers here help the students, and they aren't actually mean. The teachers help the students with whatever they need in my experience, and they aren't just teachers, they are like a second family. School is a place where you should feel safe, and Daw Middle School definitely lives up to that. Though they may slip by on some things, the students' best interests are always at heart.

  • Since when is it okay for a student to bring a knife to school, and just get three days suspenpenion? NEVER thats when, show some responsibilty, staff, u have my children up in that hell hole and i don't send them up there to be murdered. This school is a joke in so many ways and if you care about your child or children then home school them.
