Savage is a great school with very committed teachers and administrative staff. My son was active in athletics, band, and academic extra-curricular activities last year. I have witnessed the dedication these teachers/coaches provide to their students. I am extremely appreciative of their engagement in my sons' life and the lives of all of students.
This is the worst school ever. The school is filled with many spoiled, stuck up, and annoying little brats. They have very low test scores too. They lose every year in every academic events, especially in Math Super Bowl. Ustach always kicks our butts every year.
I have been reaching out to the office staff and Mr. Wood for over a week with no results. I have been told several times I would receive a call back in the afternoon only to receive no return calls. I also emailed Mr Wood with the concern about my daughter only to be brushed off. I am greatly discouraged by the response of the administrative staff at Savage.
Im a junior in high school now, but I did go here it was pretty good. I was in the orchestra and really appreciatte the music teacher now that I have the one I have now.... haha but yes I would recommend this school but I do feel theres a lot to be desired.
it is the best school I've been to and the nicest. The staff is so nice.
You can't even imagine how much we love Savage middle school! Teachers, faculty, coaches, and band teacher, and yes the principal...you just can't find better! my daughter is graduating this year, and this school will be missed!!!, but the memories, and experiences my daughter will be taking away from there, will last her a lifetime.....She is already talking about when she goes back to visit......that is a sign of a great School, dont you think? Look out Mr Holton....Robertson...she will be looking for you! =D PS Get your child involved!! Sports, band, art, so many things to choose from.....they will be better for the experience !!! I promise!! Go Savage you rock!!!

The D.J.Savage staff is great! Teachers,Administration,& counselors alike...we could not have picked a better school.
My son and I LOVE this shcool! We have moved to the East part of town when he was in 5th grade. We had a city transfer that allowed him to go to a school in a different district. WE decided to send him to Savage instead of finishing his last year of elementary school. He was below average there. Hello! He is now an above average student who now excels in all his classes!! Yay Dan Savage! Thank you!
I have 2 children currently attending. This is our first year at Savage. My children transferred from a smaller charter school. In a school this size my children falling through the cracks and not being challenged was my major concern. That concern was quickly assuaged when my children were placed in advanced classes, and through conversation with them I KNOW they are made to work hard in these classes! Moreover, despite the large size of the school, the teachers strive for a small school feel by inviting open dialogue with parents. So far, I am very happy we made the switch!!!
I am currently ateendin Daniel Savage Middle School. This school is one of the best schools I have ever been to, and I have attented many. Almost every teacher at this school is so involved in their students' success. Also, our sports teams are awesome! We have the best principal any student would ever dream of, and he is very supportive of our academics and other participations in the school. Mr. Garcia attends every event and remains an awesome romodel. It is a very friendly school and have awesome sports teams, teachers, students, parents, and overall guidance. I love being a part of this school and I wouldn't have it any other way. Kaleen Gamblin
This school is one of the worst schools in the whole county and has the most prison feeling enviroment that a student could ever wish for. Although the settings of this poorly placed, cow smelling, instution do not at all effect the school's small amount of decient teachers. Not to name any names but some are just simpler than others. -A concered student.
I am a proud parent of two boys attending Dan Savage Middle School. DSMS is an amazing school with a diverse student population. Mr. Garcia is a very dedicated and involved principal. He comes thru to any parent issues you might have. This school also has the best music teacher (Mr. Holtan) and football coach(Mr. J),which my boys speak highly of. I feel that my sons attending Dan Savage, that they are getting the best education and becoming well rounded boys who love going to school everyday. Mrs Gonzalez
