DWCS is a great place to be. The academics at this school are far better than any in the area. Dual Enrollment and other courses are offered at the high school at great lengths. They also offer extra curricular programs and after school activities. Elementary classes all have two teachers in each classroom offering much more one on one time for children. We came from private school in a different parish and have been very pleased here at DWCS. I would recommend it to anyone in the area for many reasons.

This is a school where your child will only get ahead if you know people. They also don't care if your child is failing. They won't give any more help than they have to. My child has a learning disability & was punished once for not working as fast as others. I know someone that also had many problems with the school so they moved. And this is just a sample of the problems we faced.

I posted a comment before, it miraculously disappeared. This school gets,rid of students, whom they don't like. They lure your child to this school to get their numbers, but afterwards, they find little things to get rid of your child. BE careful, before enrolling your child. Looks, can be deceptive........

DWCS is a great school. This year they received the 21st Century Grant, making them a 21st Century Community Learning Center. They have partnered with ULM and LA Tech. My kids have attended this school from the beginning and they love it. They were just approved By the USDA for an 18 million dollar loan and they will begin building soon. We are excited to be a part of all of this.

I love this school. My kids love this school. The teachers are caring and willing to go the extra mile. The staff is wonderful and committed to making the school the best around. Parents are helpful. And, the support for this school to succeed is evident. DWCS is growing academically and I can't wait to see the new school building!

DWCS is a wonderful learning environment. My child has been there since it opened and has learned so much. Yes, they are in a "make-shift" Wal-Mart building with sheet rock walls that do not have ceilings" but it works. The test scores of this school prove so. Not only do the teachers worry about the children's educational needs, they truly care about each and every child.

this school is located in a makeshift walmart building with walls of sheetrock. it has purchased 3 plots of land to build the new school on but has yet to begin the process. it is run by a board that has no accountability to anyone. thus if you believe a board member isnt doing for the school but for themselves there isnt anything you can do about removing them from the board. having children attend this school, some teachers are there for a paycheck and not the students. they have gone to uniform this new year dispite the majority of parents that stood up with personal concerns of why they were against them. personally the school has gone down hill. it is not an inviting atmosphere unless you agree with the happenings.
