    Academics are good at DMS and extracurricular activities but homework is minimal and the kids should be learning good study techniques to succeed in high school. I think it would be a good idea to consider A and B teams at this level so that more kids to participate in sports and stay connected to groups. It is important at this age to identify with a group and not feel isolated.

    The academics are great the teachers actully take time to explain things and give students who need it extra help. The extra activites are great. Parent involvement seems fairly high. All In All this school is wonderful.
