I am SO disappointed with DDMS. Having children in other Wake County schools since 1992, we have never experienced such a high level of lack of support. Leadership begins at the top and DDMS doesn't have it. There is absolutely no communication. We do not stay informed. No news letters or notices, no voice messages with reminders (dances, early release, etc). There was a lockdown last week, we still do not know why. My sons HS communicates frequently. There's no recess for these children, even 10 minutes of social time is off limits. I have addressed this, but turned down. As a previous post stated'the children are set up to fail.' How true!

Under the leadership of Dr. Judy Munn, this school Was exceptional. However, the new principal is very uninvolved and uninterested in the quality of education. Most of the teachers hired by Dr. Munn have fled to find better leadership at other schools.

Very disappointing. Students are set up to fail. No effort given to try to get kids to succeed and want to continue education, they are shot down and not even given the opportunity. The faculty seems to have resided to they won't get anywhere and aren't doing anything to promote success.

Let me just start off and tell you that this is an awesome school. My past teachers were truly amazing and a big thanks goes out to them. I am also on the Dillard Football Team. I love it. My coaches are there for us and I never stop learning anything out there on the field. So thanks to all of you guys for everything. I would also like to say that the environment is great. The staff is always friendly and it's just an amazing place to be.

Dillard Drive is simply outstanding. The effort by the teachers and administration to improve and achieve excellence should be rewarded.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
