We have a new principal, Dr. Cynthia McCray, alone with teachers and other staff members, who has done an exceptional job in creating a first class learning and teaching environment for our children at Dutchtown Middle School
The teachers care; the students care; there is a great repitoire between all individuals who have a stake in the school's success.
We like the school, but next school year 2009/2010. I will like the school to have more for 8th graders moving on, such as field trips to fun and exciting place and a promotional cermony not just a dogwalk my son didnot care to attend. Need to do more. Great School with Teachers who cares.
Dutchtown Is one of the best schools.My child goes there and he likes the teachers and everything.He also said the teachers teach very easily.They are all nice.
I love this school and the faculty they all provide outstanding service to the children and have zero tolerance the first time. Some children need this. My daughter is attending 6th grade and loves going to school she has no issues. I say stay involved and informed. It will be sad that 6th grade will be her first and last at DMS; we moved to another school area and transportation is not provided by the County. We will miss everyone there :( But change is good so I expect her to excel at her new school.
I agree, the teachers and staff are more concerned with social class then helping the individual student. As well, my granddaughter was wanting mr to put her into private school. She loved Luella Middle it brakes my heart to see her struggle with trying to fit in. From what she tells the students are aggressive and alot of bulling does go on , but ,again it is a social class
The school is very challenging and I love that aspect of it and the teachers are really concerned about the students education.
i have been at dutchtown for sixth grade and half of seventh grade. the school is horrible. there are fights in the hallways almost every week and the teachers are too busy trying to settle the students to teach anything. i used to be an all A student. now my grades are dropping to a C average. i am very dissapointed with the teachers and administration.
We have been very pleased with all the teachers that my son has. Our son has excelled in many different aspectsof his education since we moved here and started in the Dutchtown school.
Dutchtown is a great school, we have to encourage parents to get more involved and embrass different diversity backgrounds.
I`ve been at Dutchtown Middle School for all three years, that they offer. This school is challenging for all students. The classes that I have made me think out of the box and made me look at all aspects in life. The teachers are wiling to help on everything, and you can tell that they enjoy their job. the only problem that brings the school down is the discipline. The program that they have to deal with discipline issues (they are called spikes) is insufficent. Everyday more and more students are put into ISS and OSS because of the spike process. There is also another problem...the administriative department. The principle ms. downs lacks many needed social skills. She does not know how to communicate with the students or teachers. This quality, in which she lacks, is holding the school back.
Work on bus issues and student behavior towards other students aswell as students treated equally as other students - Great teachers though.
i go to school at dutchtown and i think dutchtown is a wonderfull, challenging and nice school.
My daughter attended for one year and will be back in private school next year. Poor acedemics, low parent involvement and kids from other counties are pulling the good kids down. Most of them are leaving.
