What a difference! My son is in a small elemtanry class (14 students) with two outstanding teachers who pay attention to him as an individual. He has thrived in this environment academically and socially. He is sorry when it is a weekend because he loves going to DMS so much - that is the opposite from his former school where he wasn`t challenged and usually dreaded going to school.
