Dont listen to all the bad comments destin middle school is a very good public school with great teachers.
This school seems like an expensive private school in that it offers a high quality education in a smaller protected environment. Peers are offspring of mostly professionals who have instilled a few manners so delinquency issues are practically nonexistent. Don't believe any rumors about snobbery. This is the best public middle school the area has to offer.
You couldn't find a better middle school than Destin Middle! Awesome caring and dedicated teachers and staff and a principal that we will miss since this is Mr. Britt's last year at the school. Opportunities abound in this school and academics are challenging but definitely worthwhile for the students. The Arts are emphasized as well as sports. Great parent involvement ensures a well rounded learning community. Go Marlins!!
Destin middle was a wonderful school! I had been to many other schools but this one was the best! The teachers are very helpful and the principal is very on top of the things that go on at the school. I would highly reccomend this school.
I am extremly disappointed w/DMS. The core classes are good for Florida standard but they do teach to the FCAT rather than to what will be taught in the next grade for that subject.
Our daughter is a student at DMS. This is a great school. We are extremely pleased with the quality of the academics the teachers and the staff. The teachers are open and willing to work with the kids to help them achieve. The band program is very strong and the band director does a super job with the kids. There is great parent involvement and great school spirit. There are many extracurricular activities for the kids from sports to clubs. The SRO Officer Jacox does a super job with the kids and I have no concerns for our daughter's safety. After several years of dismal school experiences we have found a breath of fresh air here.
Our child attends DMS. The teachers are accessible and caring the staff is on top of the game and the opportunities are excellent. The band director is super and does an excellent job with the kids! Academics are strong and there is tutoring available. The teachers really want the kids to succeed. We have found the staff to be responsive. The on-site school Officer is great with the kids and I feel confident in our child's safety. After many crummy school experiences DMS has been a breath of fresh air!
Principal is a 'non-factor' do nothing principal and unresponsive to parent's concerns. After school programs are lack luster with little to no pride discipline and inspiration. Extra-curricular activities are dismal at best. The football team consistently posts losing records year after year (4 wins in 4 years). The Band is also an embarrassment. Parent involvement is also dismal because the parents feel that there is nothing that they can do to affect change. From an academic perspective Destin Middle School is a good school. The teachers are accessible and the overall education experience is positive.
Destin middle school is a great school.
