    Originally built in 1966 as a high school, the building was renovated into the middle school in 1998. Today the 157,000-square foot facility houses nearly 900 students in grades 6-8. The building boasts a full size gym, a 1,000+ seat auditorium, a card access system, and internet/television/ phone access in all classrooms.

    Our middle level instructional program is delivered through an interdisciplinary team format which stresses subject matter as well as pupil development. This configuration helps students by providing consistency while encouraging them to perceive the wholeness that exists in learning.  In addition, our middle school facilitates student transition from a self-contained elementary school setting to a departmentalized high school setting. The interdisciplinary team organization assists the students in successfully traversing the period of time between the elementary and high school years.

  • Keeping School Safe

    At its regularly scheduled business meeting April 23, the DTSD Board of School Directors approved contracting with Vulnerability Solutions Group, LLC to perform an audit of campus security. This type of comprehensive examination of our school’s physical facilities and operational procedures is one the district contracts outside experts to conduct every few years and will be performed later this spring. Past recommendations have factored into the district’s current comprehensive All Hazards Incident Response Plan; the upcoming review will look at those existing procedures and may also provide suggestions for infrastructure changes
