    Our 6th grader goes to Danville Middle and she absolutely loves it! She has made lasting friendships and her grades have stayed a constant A/B!!! Her teachers are amazing and spend time with my daughter when she doesn't understand something.It isn't in the city where there are lots of distractions.

    My son attends the 5th grade and the school is meeting his needs.

    I just moved here and i attend DMS and I have to say the school is good. Other than paddleing which rarely happens anymore. Its great the teachers and students act like a family. Everyone knows everyone. You get this safe homey feeling while being here. I give it 5stars. Go DMS!!!!!!!

    Over all I would say we have a pretty good school however I would like to see a little more security for our students. The other issue I have is not just with DMS but the State of Alabama and the lack of commitment to help our gifted children excel in school and not become board with the normal day to day activities.

    i happen to attend DMS and i think other than paddeling the school is great! all the teachers are very helpful the students are mostly coopertive.plus they give full effort to help you. If this school was a movie it would most deffinatly get a FIVE star score!

    Discipline is lacking. Kids are rude and not respectful of their classmates or teachers.
