DMMS is the best middle school! They have a lot of extra curricular activities that get the students involved. We have an award winning drumline and dancefinity who are just amazing in everything they do. The teachers are kind and understanding, but are strict when they need to be. We have advanced classes, accelerated classes, and classes to help you get ahead of the game if you're falling behind. There are students who help the 6th graders get to know the school and get involved called W.E.B. leaders. They are basically the big brothers and sisters of the school. We also have trail guides who help new students find their way around the school. In my experience at DMMS, everybody has been nice to everybody. Sure, there is always a small dose of drama, but I have never heard of a place where there isn't. The popular people are probably the nicest people on campus, which is very rare in my experience. Overall Dorothy McElhinney is the best middle school ever! I don't know anyone who would want to go anywhere else!
We have a strong sense of family and community at Dorothy. McElhinney middle school. Our campus is interactive and promotes student involvement. The school has the visual performing arts piece throughout the grade levels which makes this school very attractive to kinesthetic learners (especially boys) having this type if learning going in has taught my boys that learning can be fun. I have seen this school grow and I am proud to be a DMMS parent
This school is wonderful. My daughter had to transition from private school to public school since we moved out from another state. Being her 1st public school, she has been part of school JV volleyball team and #1 again this year. Dorothy McElhinney has been positive and exciting environment for her. She enjoys going to school everyday and very pro-active with her academic, sports and art. She is now doing class for her second semester and loves it. I have little contact with the teachers and staff because my daughter is doing excellent at school and informative when new events comes up. Great School!
