STAR STUDENTS 2018
 
 
DSA had two STAR students this year!  These two young ladies were recognized for scoring above a 1360 on their SAT and for being in the top 10% of their class (unofficially)!  CONGRATULATIONS to Amy Brooks Coon and Holyn Thigpen.  We would also like to recognize the two STAR Teachers they selected:  Mr. Martin Buccafusco and Mr. Jeremy Landes, respectively.
