Such a bad school. my last year there and they said I had to stand a certain distance between someone and i couldnt hug anyone? thats the stupidest thing ever. the teachers dont teach you, they say what they will be teaching you, show you a video, then give you homework that is harder than what they taught you and wont help you even if you ask, they will say that you should have payed attention. WORST.SCHOOL.EVER.

Denn John Middle School is a great school to be part of because it aims to challenge students to achieve not just academic success but also embrace life. The administrators are very supportive of its teachers and staff. There are a lot of phenomenally talented students. A feeling of warmth greets you when you enter the school.

I believe that the teachers and adminstrators at DJMS do care very much about all the childrens' education. The problem is usually that parents don't teach their children the fundementals at home...and then they are shocked when they are told that little Johnny is misbehaving or hit the teacher or is cussing like a sailor. Teachers need the parents to partner with them to give their children the best education available. The behavior issue is solely the parents' duty. My 11 year old attends DJMS and loves it, but she is shocked at the language some students use and the lack of respect these kids have for any authority figure. Where do you think they get it from???

I think every school has issues. I dont agree with the parents that have posted negative comments about Denn John. There is a high involvement of the faculty and staff with the students. They do have activities for the kids. I also find it very easy to contact the teachers and speak with them face to face. I think that you should take some time and visit the school, meet with the teachers and other staff. Ive had a very positive experience my daughter is now a 8th grader (and honors student) and has been at that school since the 6th grade. I have no complaints whatsoever. I always advice people that if you have some doubt or problem, go ahead and schedule a techer-parent conference. I think keeping those communication lines open with the school helps a lot.

Denn John middle has improved significantly over the past few years. In part because of the new principal that the school has. I would not chose another school for my son

I am very happy with my sons progress here in Denn John Middle school. The administration, starting from the principal, teacher and other staff members are doing an excellent job in the education of our children. Do not take my word for it, just look at the grades that this school has received in the last two year. Great Work!

Our child has been at DJMS for 5 months and we are very disappointed. Teachers appear to resent parental involvement. I agree children need rules and structure, these should be applied with common sense. They have a A but only because they of improvement not quality.

The school is far too overcrowded with large class sizes. The administration allows poorly behaved students to distract the good students from their learning. My child's education should not be compromised for those who don't know how to comport themselves in a learning environment. There is only one lab for the entire school, and there just aren't many resources for students here. I would not recommend this school.

Denn John Middle School is a great school! The teachers work very hard with the students to help them succeed. They are also really big into technology. There is also a 'family' feel at this school that makes it very welcome and supporting. They have very set rules that the students must follow which also helps them succeed. Some academic programs include the Baccalureate Placement Program, Chorus, Band, Music, Navy ROTC, Ropes Course, COMPASS, Read 180, Keyboarding, and many more! There are after school programs provided through the YMCA and the 21st Century Learning Grant. Parental involvement is high for concerts and other after-school activites. Parents can also write to their child's teachers through their agenda.

DJMS consists of a close knit group of educators, who are committed and caring towards the students. The discipline in the school is strong and strict, maintaining an orderly campus. There is a zero tolerance for drugs and violence.

Bullies run the show. Administration addressed it as them establishing 'Their pecking order'. My only choice was to home school.
