Destin Middle School5

We were surprised to learn we were getting a new principal last year, but couldn't be happier with Mr. Marello. He genuinely cares about his students and actually listens to their suggestions and concerns. As a parent, it's comforting to know that we have someone like him in charge over there! DMS is a wonderful school!
This school seems like an expensive private school in that it offers a high quality education in a smaller, protected environment. Peers are offspring of mostly professionals who have instilled a few manners, so delinquency issues are practically nonexistent. Don't believe any rumors about snobbery. This is the best public middle school the area has to offer.
You couldn't find a better middle school than Destin Middle! Awesome, caring and dedicated teachers and staff and a principal that we will miss since this is Mr. Britt's last year at the school. Opportunities abound in this school and academics are challenging but definitely worthwhile for the students. The Arts are emphasized as well as sports. Great parent involvement ensures a well rounded learning community. Go Marlins!!
Destin middle was a wonderful school! I had been to many other schools, but this one was the best! The teachers are very helpful and the principal is very on top of the things that go on at the school. I would highly reccomend this school.
