    We are a military family and have seen many different schools. Dutch Fork Middle is one of the best we've seen (including DOD schools). Communication is excellent between parent and school. My child's teachers for the most part have taken the time to get to know him as an individual and facilitate his learning as such. The atmosphere of the school is upbeat and this seems to come from the 'top' on down. The school's principal does 'pick up and drop off' duty almost every day rain or shine. I think that's a pretty good role model. In short our experience at DFMS has been a great one. Go Foxes!
