    This has got to be the absolute worse school I have ever attended. I'm homeschooled now because of it. I was a student at Delaware Valley Elementary School for three years then moved to Dingman Delaware Elementary and Middle School for another three years. I got bullied relentlessly at both schools. And while the principal attempted to do something she eventually gave up at DV. And I got bullied by my fifth grade teacher and principal at DD. It's a horrible school on the social aspect. They have this "wonderful" no bullying policy yet when a kid gets bullied they do NOTHING about it. When it comes to teaching we did get taught our studies well but that's about it. I am so glad I'm out of that school.

    This school is the best you can go to out of Pennsylvania. I am a student here and I love it. I am a straight A+ student and currently my highest grade is German (Miss King) Miss King is the best teacher there can ever be. She makes German a fun language to learn. All I have to say is definitely put your child in this school because he/she can become like me straight A's.

    I'm in 7th grade and I really like this school. The teachers are really nice and are willing to go the extra mile. The classes are also really good. They are challenging but still enjoyable especially with this schools teachers.

    I love the school because of the opportunites that my child has to learn and expand her horizons. They have a first rate art music and educational curriculum.

    (continued from the last one I wrote. sorry I had to many things to say in 150 words.) ...but it's something that will make us smarter in the end. There are many after school activities I've been in girl's tennis and I am currently in soccer. You can choose to be in band chorus orchestra or you can take nothing and get a study hall. The languages you can take are French Spanish or German. All the teachers are fun kind and they try to relate our daily lives with the subject so we understand it more. I love this school and I think that compared to others it's a very competitive and academically smart school.

    Well I think that DDMS is a great school so far for my kids. My kids are straight A students and this school has everything they need to continue to be. They have the honor classes that make them challenge their minds. They also have tutors set up throughout the days as well as after school to help with any difficulties a student might be having. I think this is great. They encourage extra curricular activities as well. I also like the fact that if the student doesn t make their grades they cannot participate in the extra activities and they are put into a study/tutor program to bring them back up. Once they achieve the grade they can once again join an activity. They also enroll the students into the program. That is 50$ per child per grade level. No charge to the parent. I give it 2 thumbs up.

    My son seems to enjoy this school and the teachers seem to know his personality and learning style. Which shows they pay attention to the individual student.So far so good.

    I am a student of DDMS I think that it's a great place to send students. I think that out teachers are well trained and they know what to suspect out of students. Our principal and vice knows how to handle situations. They also make the students laugh even I laugh. We have one excellent school and I hope it will never change.

    The administration at this school helps create an ideal optimistic learning environment for students. The administration is also highly supportive of staff. Misbehavior is dealt with fiarly and swiftly and repeat offenders are removed from the school (usually temporarily) to protect others' right to learn. However I believe student success is attributable to individual motivation and parental involvement more than effective teaching. There are a few teachers who collect salaries but do not teach well nor do they make an effort to connect with students to create classroom atmospheres conducive to learning.

    I am a student at DDMS and I think this school is awesome. The teachers relate to us and help us alot and when we ask for help they dont ignore you. It is a great school altogether.

    I find that the academics are stressed to the students.Other programs such as music art and sports are made available.
