I recommend DPS to anyone looking to send their children to a well-established facility that has staff that truly cares about the children's success. the fact that all public schools deal with diversity, such as financial, gender, or ethnic is no secret, however; DPS does their best to make sure everyone is treated equally and there is a strict no-bullying policy that is held with high regard. You can also rest assured that with the optimal academic performance our extracurricular activities are amazing as well; Ranging from Band and football to Choir, Golf, and Ag. I encourage everyone looking for the best possible school for their child to check out DPS.
