Richard Henry Dana Middle School Reviews
Overall, Dana is a good school, I agree with those who like it. The teachers are good. I like the staff, but what they COULD improve on is the proctors and the lunch program though...
I believe Dana MS's teachers care about the students' learning
behaviors because of the teachers educate the students how to study and to be succeed at school.
