This school gets zero stars from me...my daughter has been bullied for the whole 2013-1014 year and she is in 6th grade! My daughter and I filed a bully complaint and the only thing that happened is she got detention for defending her self. This is by far the worst school my child to attend. The Magnet Program does not make the school any better. I feel sorry for any child who as to go here. This school, the kids and the staff is thee worst!!!!

I am a concerned parent of a 7th grader @ DCM whom is having to remove his child from this school and complete the school year out at home Via Home Schooling. This is due to the daily Bullying, Assualts, Racism and intimidation that my child has to endure... He is assulated infront of teachers whom then turn a blind eye. This school has robbed my child of an opportunity to get an education. If I could give less then 1 star I would because DCM and its staff is not worthy of the 1 star I am giving.

As a DCMMS alumna, I can testify that the school has come very far in a few short years. You won't find a school more in tune with current technology, teachers are young and dedicated, and there are several extra curricular activities to choose from, should your child choose to participate. Go Eagles!

My son absolutely loves the school. The teachers are great! There is a low tolerance for poor behavior making the school a safe and comfortable learning environment. The schoo has a lot of diversity in students and staff and the magnet program offers an outstanding curriculum.

DCMMS is a wonderful school. This school is a school that focuses on technology of the future. The PTA is very active and the staff (most of them) are very caring and supportive of the students. I look forward to seeing great things from this school as it has a major face lift and even more staff changes. This will be one BCPS to watch grow and flourish!

My child was in the GT program at this school and if you apply yourself, you can get a good education. However, when it comes to parent involvement, the school/teachers seems to not really want it. The 8th grade graduation that took place in June 2005 was the biggest joke. I think when a student works hard, has great behavior, and gets 2 'B's' and all 'A's' (for the year) in the GT program, has perfect attendance, and is involved in activities some awards should be given. After all we teach our children that hard work and dedication produces rewards. Not to just to be a favorite pick of your teacher and he/she will reward you for lower grades.

Imagine that, teachers holding children accountable and requiring them to be ON TIME TO CLASS. (Sounds like something that would happen in the real world like college or work.) I can't believe that! Obviously I am being sarcastic. I can't believe a parent would actually say that having a rule about lateness is stupid. See response below. As a parent, the teachers at this school are great and hold children to high expectations as it should be! I wish more parents would get involved and stop sitting back on the side lines. The number of parents that actually attend the PTSA meetings is a joke. I hope to see more parents there this upcoming school year.

My child is in the GT classes at Deep Creek and the teachers treat her like she should know everything. There is one teacher who has the rudest comments and the 'late for class' rule is ridiculous. Don't get me wrong, she has some great teachers to but I just wish she was treated with a little more respect, she is a great girl and very eager to learn.

As a student of this school when it was a Jr./Sr. High School I have nothing but positive words about this institution. We were able to compete in organized interscholatic sports and the educational staff was excellent.

Back to School Night on Sept.15, 2004 was handled very nicely. Parents were given the chance to hear an overview of the childs curriculum in each subject. The experience of meeting the teachers will give us a better advantage in helping our child throughout the year. I would like to state that the teachers were very receptive and helpful in speaking about child's progress. Kudos to all concerned!
