Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
effective not at all, detention is the only solution they know, and i as a parent don't find out about any issues until he has hit on a 2-3 day suspension. if the teachers did the job, i assure you this issue would have been taken care of long before a suspension.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
my son is an A student, maybe twice he has done homework at home. what homework? my kid just isn't that smart were he doesn't need to study, ever.


Develops character: Strongly disagree

simply put, they don't develop honesty, integrity, and fairness. you have to have those qualities in yourself before you can teach it.

I'm a freshman now, and I went to DVMS for 7th and 8th grade. This is a wonderful school! The teachers really are there for you if you have any problems, personally or academically, and not just for those "popular kids". They really do care about all the students as long as you're willing to cooperate, and they take time to figure out what's wrong and how you can improve. The work isn't too hard, even if you're in advanced classes like I was, and they don't give much homework, which is expected in middle school. The lessons are typically engaging and easy to understand if your really pay attention. It really is a close-knit school. I know a lot of kids complain there's too much work or the teachers suck, but those are the kids not actually trying. I wouldn't rate this school beyond 5 stars if I could.

ITS A GREAT SCHOOL YOU SHOULD ATTEND the teachers are wonderful no drugs thank goodness

Im a Student At Dvms, A Seventh Grader. It's A Nice Looking Place With Friendly Teathers And Staff But Soon I Realized That This School Isn't The Safest, This Year They Took It To Extremes And Got A Police Officer To Guard The School, Both After Hours And Before Hours He/She Is Always There... Now You Should Feel Safe Right? To Me It Just Spells How Bad The School Is. The Student Aren't Better Either. The Cuss And Talk About Things Like Drugs (Mainly The Boys) Of Coarse They Don't Do It But Still They Talk. They Do Stuff They Wouldn't At Home, I Would Advise Parents To Ask Your Child A Few Questions Cause They Are Not Any Better. Another Thing Is Students Are All About Relationships And Dating, At This Young? They Ignore The Rules, While Doing It Behind The Teachers Back, But Of Coarse The Teachers Don't Notice It Cause There Priceless Students Wouldn't Do That. But The Learning Is Great Every Teacher Has There Own Way Of Teaching Making It Easier To Learn, When In Advanced (Like I'm In) They Will Give Excessive Amounts Of Homework Were It's Hard To Keep Up With Grades, Like Really Hard, Overall It's A Two For Me.

I am very dissatisfied with the level of professionalism by the leaders of the school staff.



- a
it is a good school with supportive teachers and staff. The principle encourages students to reach their full potential.




- a
I teach Band, Choir, and Guitar at DVMS. I can honestly say that I love the staff and the leadership. The kids show great heart and have a desire to be involved. I wouldn't want to work anywhere else!



- a
Safe enviroment for my child. Lots of top learning opportunities for each level that a child can accomplish.
