Dallas Ranch Middle School 2

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?
