From DHMS Counseling: Exciting news! Over the next few weeks, Druid Hills Middle School students will begin YouScience, the science of YOU! We believe YouScience is a great way for students to learn more about themselves, explore high-demand careers that are a good fit for them, and gain a better understanding of how their unique talents are needed in the economy. YouScience is not an assessment. Click here to learn more about what it is and what it means for your student. Counselors will provide more information soon. Students should complete the inventory independently, by March 31st, after their grade level counselor has helped them get started.
