My child has been attending DJAMS since the 6th grade. I have been amazed at how much he has learned over the past 2 1/2 years. The expectations are high, and the teachers offer the support the students need to help each student achieve.

DJMAS is an wonderful school. From everyone in the office to the teachers. Everyone who works at this school really seems to care about the students. The office staff is always so pleasant and very helpful. You would not regreat sending your child to this school.

AMAZING! This is a great school for me. It provides me with academic excellence with the best teachers, who do not just make you learn, they make you know and understand. And DJAMS I have reached new heights and happiness. I could not think of a better middle school to go to.
