    The school is very dedicated to the children's well-being. The teachers don't just educate the students they also motivate inspire and relate to the students. The principal and parents are highly involved in everything that involves the kids. The education my son receives there is top-notch.

    Its been couple of years since my son is attending DDES. I am happy to say that my son is getting the similar level of education as compared to larger cities in the country. It is testament to the teachers and the Principal of the school that take pride in their job and that is reflected in the PSSA results of the school students. I highly recommend this school as center of quality learning and education.

    I moved here from the #1 school district in Suffolk County Long Isand. I am happy to say that my son has been placed in advanced math here in DDES. This is his second year at DDES and I could not be happier with the teachers and staff at the school.
