I love this school because my son is excelling in all of his subjects, he's become outgoing and confident, and has learned strong social/interpersonal skills I wish I had when I was his age. I know for sure DIS has a huge impact on his progress and independence, and it will be an honor to see DIS recognized for the job it does. Though I am not voting for Millbridge, I will say that it had a huge impact on his foundation also. 'Go Bears!'

My son was a new student in DIS last year and was very shy. he has excelled academically and socially. I personally think it is because the teachers and staff take the time to get to know each student and help guide them in the right direction for that student. It is a wonderful school.

It truly takes only one person to make a difference in a child's life. we as a community are truly blessed that we have so many more than just one person at DIS to help mold our children not only academically but what it really means to be a whole person, make right choices, how to treat one another, and leave the world a little bit brighter and a little bit better of a place than you found it. the staff is truly superior. what else could one ask for for their child?

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
