Douglas Byrd Middle Ratings & Reviews

i am 8th grade student at douglas byrd middle school going onto high school this year and i was highly upset about 2013-2014 school year. the principle thinks she's doing the students good by taking away things like field trips, dances. I wrote her a letter and put it in her box about the 8th grade students having there end of year dance and she said no . Students having been coming up to me asking if we were having one and i told them no because the principle said she didn't want to ruin it for us when we get to high school. Me part of the student government was highly upset because you know like all the 8th graders want this and i was very anxious about it so i kept trying. and i feel that since the principle didn't give us 8th grade students an end of grade dance , she decided to let everyone dress down for the rest of the year. which is a week and 2 and a half days. we are the only school in Cumberland County that did not have an 8th grade ball.. so i am highly upset with douglas byrd middle school and its principle. i will never change my decision about this school .

Some teachers are highly unprofessional, they dress inappropriately with tight clothes etc, and they talk to the students inappropriately. Previous statements about not having open communication if correct, my child was involved in an serious incident at school and I never received one phone call or letter. If kids act up they kick them out of class with no supervision. Some insult them and wonder why the kids go off on them and several students have even accused teachers for being dishonest and rude. I work with kids every day, and have been impressed by the charter schools I visit in other counties. They have cameras in every classroom with sound and they encourage parent involvement. There s never a question about what happened, and with students and teachers being held more accountable knowing the cameras are watching them, incidents leading to suspensions are drastically reduced. That leaves teachers with more time to teach and less time with behavioral issues. I'm beginning to feel like the whole school system is outdated and needs to be privatized. It seems that charter schools can do so much more with the money and provide a higher level of education.

I had to remove my child from a different school because of bullying and enrolled him in DBMS. From day one both I and my child were very pleased with the school. Students as well as staff members were very welcoming and my child loves it. It's nice to know there are still passionate teachers out there who care about the well being of our children and not only the EOG scores.

I don't know whether any of the previous reviewers from 2007 have bothered to inquire about the progress of DBMS, but the facts and figures speak for themselves. As of the 2007-2008 school year, DBMS is now a high-growth school with exemplary leadership and teachers. The fact of the matter is that everything hinges on GREAT leadership. When this changed, the school dramatically improved in every area. Don't take my word for it. Check the facts!
