A medal winning school, ranked top 50 in the state. Offers incredible extra-curricular activities and has top notch sports and music programs. The marching band has traveled to Dublin, Ireland to take part in their st. Patricks day parade...they're amazing. The school has continually improved over the past decade, and if it keeps going in this direction, it will soon be one of the very best in massachusetts.
I'd like to give this school a higher rating, but in the past 20-30 years, it has gone downhill. I have a daughter here now, and although she loves being with her friends, almost every day she's telling me things you'd expect from an inner city school. Ironically, inner city schools have really cleaned up, while those in the suburbs are becoming what they were in the 70s and 80s.
The DY Schools are Great! I'm am incredibly impressed with the progressive education, amazing sports programs, arts, music, and so much more! Definitely a real jewel for the towns of Yarmouth and Dennis! http://DYSchoolsAreGreat.wordpress.com if you want to see more parent feedback!
As a former student and former faculty member of DY I have only good things to say about it. I had great teachers and a great experience at the school. The extracurriculars are phenomenal and the students here have so much talent and so much heart.
Our son graduated from D-Y in 2005! When entering 9th grade he had an opportunity for a full scholarship to go to a private local High School, but after we talked to the principal (Mr. Jenks), he decided to give D-Y a try. The AP courses are extemely challenging with small classes, and teachers that push students to do their best, and that's what made my son strive to be the best. He got full scholarship to a Private University and got a 3.66 his first semester there. He feels like he was very well prepared for college, thanks to his teachers . He wishes, AP classes will be availabale to all grade levels in the future. He was very active in Band as well. This school has it all, if the student wants it they will make it happen! A very caring community!
