I dont think DHS is as good as people try to make it sound. Damascus DOES have racial problems i have friends of all races and see how they're treated different then I am at times.

I believe as a student that DHS is one of the best schools in Montgomery County. Of course there are some racist kids but racism is present in every school. The teachers here are very helpful in every way, and Mr. Domergue, our principal does all that he can to help us succeed and give us a safe enviornment.
