    Diley Middle School is amazing. Everybody that I know gets A's and B's. I am about to be in the school spelling bee along with seven of my peers from my team. (Team Spirit!) We also have art technology gym music band percussion drums orchestra and wind. Next year at Jr. High we will be able to take a variety of languages. Me and my friends get plenty of exercise and we get to interact with other people during our classes. This will be my last year here and I will miss this school so much. Thank you Diley for opening up a web of possibilities for me and my classes. -A loving student.

    Extremely dissatisfied with this school. My child is behind his grade level but only receives minimal assistance even though we have repeatedly asked for additional testing and possibly an IEP. I hear this concern/complaint from many parents who are in similar situations and have children in Pickerington.

    This school is an excellent school. My daughter just graduated from Diley Middle and loved the teachers and principal. It's a very nice environment and she learned a lot. This is a very wonderful school and it is a great preparation for Junior High and High School.
