My son goes to SDMS and is in the honors classes there. The teachers are really pretty good and do the best they can. However there is a lot that they can't do anything about.

I have always felt welcome and kept informed by teachers. There is a great PTSA, despite low amount of parent involvement. A small group does much ...  Read more

My son just completed 6th grade at SDMS. This school has an extremely poor reputation in the community, but I feel that it is not deserved. My son is a 'high achiever' and he had upper level classes that were challenging, but fun. I was very pleased with the teachers too. Ms. Cole is really trying ...  Read more
