    My School is James L. Day Middle School in Temecula, CA. DMS has the best Principle and Staff. They really are there for the students and parents. They have one of the best coral programs anywhere. The some of the teachers have been there since the school openned they dont want to teach anywhere else. I'm proud to be member of the DMS family.

    The best school on this earth! i was basically the king of this school with my friends. I was 100% happy at this place. If you go here your the luckiest person on earth.

    Great teachers, great principal (NOT vice, she's so rude), and my fellow students are ... pretty disprespectful and rude and full of themselves. I see quite a bit of bullying and TONS of jerks. I still love this school though and I'm glad that I attend DMS.

    This site wont let me post my DMS experience, so let me sum it up in a nut shell. The school it's self: AWESOME Teachers: AWESOME Office staff: So-so kind of stuck up Counselor: AWESOME Vice Principal: A HORRIBLE MESS, does not know how to handle bullying. Could have possibly been a bully herself growing up, so no wonder!

    well.... this is my first yr at Day Middle and i could not stand it my 1st couple months or so. The teachers are absolutly great! But the kids on the other hand are posers. They try to be someone they're not. you know some ppl may be cool w/ that, but to be honest, i can care less.... but its they way they treat & jugde ppl. I dress punk so the ppl there just asume that I'm a mean person. But over all i give this school like a B. The princibles are nut-cases, the teachers are amazingly careful and great, and the kids.... well, there just finding themselves... this is an alright school!

    All three of my students have attended Day and it has been a great experience. There are some outstanding teachers, such as Mrs Ortwein in 6th grade who are fantastic teachers. They certainly prepare students for high school

    I've been to this school for the past 3 years,and I can truely say that this is an awesome school.The people there are very friendly,and the teachers are helpful,depending on their attitude and strict level.I recommend anyone in the Temecula area to come to this school.It's clean,with easy,safe,and disciplined rules to follow.It's no wonder it was named as A Distinguished School.

    This has been the best school so far for me, and for sure I know. With inspiring teachers who want everyone to reach their goal, this is an amazing experiance. kids who do not want to do any work and goof off will soon get off that habit because there is no slacking at dms. 7th grade has been much easier than I thought it would be. even though some of the kids can get annoying, there is some kids that take you for who you are. thank you for reading and really, dont beleive the site, believe me, the one who experiances the dms challenge.

    I have one student in DMS and I have good communications with teachers (its call parent involment)If I have a problem they try to solve it in a timely manner. The only thing I don't jump up and down is the great peer presuree this kids go throu everyday. I am a 100% uniform supporter since it seem kids go to a fashion competition school instead of going to a regular school. Parents should be on top of this issue and stop thinking that kids can find their own way to survive this dramatic school age!

    Coming from Poway school district I have found Temecula schools are a year behind, both my kids got bored and found themselves repeating things in classes they had already done the year before. The GATE program needs to be more interesting and engaging for its select members.
