This is our first experience with middle school in the Stafford County public school system. Our four older children all graduated from St. Francis of Assisi Middle School and we were unsure what to expect with our fifth child's experience. He has been extremely happy and adjusted amazingly well. The choices he has academically, socially, and athletically are exceptional and he is excelling in all areas.

I love it but there are these huge things about bullying and how they won't accept it, but a girl I know always gets her locker slammed in her face and made fun of right in front of the teachers and they don't do anything about it. hypocrites!

I've been going to Dixon-Smith since I was in 6th grade. I'm currently an 8th grader, and will be really sad when I have to leave.

We have been very pleased with DSMS! The staff is professional and kind. The principal is very approachable and so are the assistant principals. My children have received a great education there! Too bad there aren't more schools like it!

This is a great school. I have two children who go here and they love it. The principal takes care of any distubances and deals with it right away. My kids are always challanged with school work and have tons of extra ciricular activities. This is a great school and we couldn't have found a better middle school.
