I have had two students in this school. Overall, DMS is an excellent school providing you have a willing learner. Under that premise, you'll find dedicated teachers, excellent opportunity for advanced classes, consistently high testing results and a general attitude of support. I cannot speak to complaints ...  Read more

In three years I have had not a good experience with DMS, my daughter has an IEP for "specific learning disability" reading, comp and math... to get communication and support for her on a regular basis has been like pulling teeth.

I am new to the Downingtown area and am stuck with a decision! I read the great schools rating of 9/10 but I see parents only give it a 3/5. As I remember my math 90% is not the same as 60%.

Both of my children attended this school. I feel teachers there always blame either the children or the district for thier lack of teaching. The guidance counslers have a negative atitude and are slow returning phone callls

The District is so wonderful that it is disappointing to find DMS as a dark spot. The Guidance Staff are particularly concerning, and negative attention is the only kind given by the teachers to students. I find this very sad in the middle of a great district.

My daughter has been in both 6th and 7th grade here and I have found it to be a very good school. Sure she doesn't love all the teachers but over all she seems to be challenged and stimulated. The staff that I have interacted with have been very impressive. I think she will be well prepared for high ...  Read more

I agree there is way too much homework, especially for 8th graders. My son averages 4 hrs. per night and often must get up at 5:30 a.m. to finish. Some weekends, he has 10 or more hours. While the teachers are overall excellent, there are some standout bad ones. The administration is great at enforcing ...  Read more

My grandson is ADHD and has moved to this school from Florida. As difficult as it is to believe, there has only been negative attention given to him. At this point he is feeling very frustrated. An IEP is ONLY NOW(after a full semester) being approached. Granted, my impressions are secondhand but ...  Read more
