This school is super easy. I've heard that middle school has at least 1 hour of homework. Here they have no more than 30 minutes. I've had good teachers like Mr. Fithian who was a very good math teacher but there are a lot of lazy teachers too. The students are violent and think beating people up is fun. There are a lot of class cutters that go unnoticed. The principal acts as if he is a volunteer. There are classes with 40 students. There has even been students who had to sit on the counters. There is a lot of good students here but there are so many bad students it is really hard to tell. One thing I really like is that they have more Algebra 1 classes than any other middle school in Antioch.
My daughter goes to this school, not very happy, she has had two fights already, she doesnt have alot of homework and no major projects. They allow your child to go to counseling and dont infrom you.
It's okay...but it isn't as clean a people say it is. I am going to be a 7th grader soon and last year wasn't as great. I got a 4.0 without any effort. You could pretty much roam the halls without a hall pass because they don't even check you. Some people are really rude there! ;w; I was walking during the mile and this one girl said "MOVE IT!" D: So this school is OKAY. My favourite teacher is Mr. Marchetti :D
I go to this school and it has excellent teachers and an excellent teaching system. It is not the school's fault we got budget cuts. It's the state's. I'll miss DRMS after this year.
DRMS, has below state mandated academic test scores, no school in Antioch is "average", nothing to be proud of in that. There is a lot of stress on the teachers due to layoffs and budget cuts. I have two sons here, neither studious both have 4.0 GPA's...they don't do any homework, how is this possible? Low academic standards. IMHO, the school needs to concentrate on Writing, Reading and Mathematics, and let everything else fall off the wagon, these classes will determine the students future academic career. Q: Of more than 400 8th graders, how many are in Geometry? A: Less than 5%....that's nothing to be proud of. In Danville, about 40% of the students are in Geometry. Why are our students less advanced?
i like this school i do not wont to leave this school never. it is really cool and it is really clean, too.
I Love this school. it's clean and has alot of things going on thats fun! the endurence run is fun the mile run aslways have good timing, and the teachers are strict but they really care about there students! dallas ranch is a very very very nice school! it was amazingly big too! the boys are out of control parents say! but they cant control there bodys to not act this way they r who they r and the principle does excellent displine work but they cant control thereselves so its not his fault! We are having uniforms probably nxt yr and at least we get fridays to wear whatever like a spirit day!! so yay!! The homework is fine every1 in my classes has a score of 70 percent and up but sum have problems and the teachers r trying to do everything that can help them!!!
My 7th grader has had a wonderful experience thus far. The teachers that he has had are engaging and supportive. He enjoys going to shcool and has a very positive experience.
i am a former dallas ranch student abd i have to say that dallas ranch midlde school is indeed one of the best schools out there tey teach ou everything you need to know to go to the next grade although iu have to say the principle didnt treat people equally and that was pretty much the only problem
Im a sixth grader at Dallas Ranch and i absouloutly love my teachers and this school! The principal is very wonderful also!
This school is a clean school. Some of the teachers are positive role models. There were some teachers that I felt were great teachers. On the other hand, there is a teacher who unjustly disciplined a student for the wrong reasons and it was not even the student's fault. This school has the potential to be a great school, but the principal does not treat people equally.
Well, Dallas Ranch is a clean school, but the boys are way out of control, and the girls are so annoying ( not including me ). The teachers are trying to make their students to follow the six pilllars, but somehow it is not working at all. I just hate being disrespected by the students around me. Even my teacher gets disrespected by one of my classmates! So, Dallas Ranch needs more discipline!
i got to this school and everyone who wrote badly about it, i can honestly say are homework crazed parents, the students at this school --and im one-- are very well taught and over all have efficient behavior...the decipline is very effective and the school provides great teachers and after school activities. The campus is big and is very clean compared to other schools, we take pride in our school! It still looks brand new!! 'the school color is an eye-sore' as someone said is that reason to dislike a school? If you have an agruement at least try to sound intelegent, okay? Yes, there is a no hat rule, but you can buy school beanies and wear those. The princible does not treat the kids as 'inmates' he is strict to the rules. One parent on here was asking for 2hrs of homework a day, thats rediculous.
this school is wonderful better than most middle schools a large tv in every classroom, at least 2 computers in every room, large hallways, in door lockers, large cafeteria with 6 places to chose from, and an large campus
I love i go to the school. Is is a wonderful school. All the teacher are great. Even the principle and vice principle.
I am very happy with my child's school experiance and performance at Dallas Ranch. The teachers and staff are very helpful and nice, the campus is safe, clean and beautiful and her grades are excellent. Her foundation could not be stronger for high school.
My son has had a positive experience at DRMS. He has met many great kids at this school. The Sports program was great but ---- AUSD killed it! Intramurals are taking it's place so we'll see what happens there. Overall I think my son is safe and getting a quality education.
Dallas Ranch is the best Middle School in the Antioch Unified School District. The students learn and are respected by all staff members. It is a safe school and I would be happy to send any of my children to this school.
The students are out of control, the princepal treats them like inmates, and the hat rules are ridicules! Also, the school color is an eye-sore.
This was once a great school When Mrs. Zinn was there. Since then, I have seen it slowly slip. They try hard to promote the 6 pillars of character but that is a joke. Current principal is too busy tryning to be 'politicaly correct'. Discipline could be MUCH better. Overall, it has potential to be a GREAT school. Not sure how they got such a high score in Extracurricular activities when there are just a few.
