This school is the best. I was nervous to send my child here knowing how bad it used to be. But let me tell you the teachers are out help the students a lot the kids always have fun stuff to do there is no fight that go on. I am glad I sent my child here. Mr. K is always walking around to make sure he knows what's going on in his school.

people out there this si not my school and i heard rumors about how bad it is like anyone else did and i dont agree. my friend goes there and i really love that school i wanted to go but the last few years for my sister are not good so i couldnt go instead im at cunningham its a awesome school people say tis better i agree but still ditmas is still good so everyone behave, and youll difineltely get into a good class in there. and another thing they have awesome classes which help in future the most thing i like in my school si that they give 8th graders a high school test which gives them credit for high school. so yeah bye i would give a three but in some ways its a 4 stars

You know what, just like any other person in the neighbour hood , I heard bad stuff about this school too and the only reason I went there was because it was close.But really, my experience there was phenomenal. The thing is , if you're a good student , then you wont be missing out on any opportunity . I wont lie though, there are a few bad kids there ...just like any other school would have . But if you're a really outstanding student, they will put you in a class of your standard, you'll be surrounded by nice students too..So yeah, Good luck to all future students.

Well, Ditmas is a good school. It is pretty good despite some of the bad students. But they're mostly the ones who are bad and almost impossible to reason with. The teachers are good. I have nothing but good things to say about the school . To new students, do good, help your teachers and don't get mixed up with the wrong people. Trust me, if they go down, they'll make sure you do too whether you're with them or not.

I am a senior about to graduate in June. When i first went to Ditmas the education was great. But the only thing was the students did not want to take the education seriously. When i first came the kids where bad did not care about anyone but there self's, they would curse teachers out and have fights with another students. They would bully the 6th graders. But over the time when all the bad kids left the school. Everything started to get peaceful less fighting. Now we just go to the guidance consular and she help solve the students problems. The teachers and staff are great at ditmas. The 3 years a spent at was crazy, exciting, and amazing.

I'm the parent of a nice Irish kid with dyed blue hair!!! Erin has her own style and is encouraged at Ditmas in both her studies and personal expression. The teachers are really dedicated and the principal is a gift from God. Definitely worth checking out. Go anytime and look in on a class, you will be pleasantly surprised.

This is one of the best JHS. The principal, assistant principals, deans, guidance counselors and teacher are terrific. They care very much about the students. Could not ask for more.

I was a student at ditmas and I graduated about a month ago. it is a pretty good school. the teachers are great. Some of the students in this school are not on track, they don't care about learning. My advice to new students in this school is that do what you have to do and don't get involved with bad students because they are going to take you down with them.

I'm a former student of Ditmas. In the past, the school had a pretty bad reputation but the principal and staff found ways to improve the school. At times while attending Ditmas, I found that certain teachers would do anything to help you improve your test scores, but at the same time, some of the teachers seemed to not really care. Overall, Ditmas is a fairly good school and I believe that the education I got there will help me in the future.

Ditmas is a good school. I'm a student there. I really improved with my test scores. My math and reading scores got higher. The teachers are great. They'll do anything to get the students to learn. In my own words I love that school. Everyday I see students from years ago come and visit.
