From the Principal’s Desk….

April is here and that means students have successfully completed third quarter at Dumbarton Middle School. Before we know it we will be in June. This week MAP test results reports were given to students to bring home. The data show that our students continue to excel at high levels. Should you have questions about the MAP test home reports feel free to contact Ms. Cheryl Scott, Assistant Principal & Test Coordinator at

 As you may know, last month we were selected to be one of seven schools to become a Lighthouse Middle School next year. That means that our school will be embarking on a transformation in terms of focusing on increased student engagement through student-centered learning activities in the classroom. This also includes personalized and customized learning which fosters student collaboration and includes providing opportunities for student choice. Flexible grouping is also used to better meet student needs. In addition, our incoming 6th graders will be receiving computer devices to use in the classroom and take home next year. The following year, all middle school students will be provided with computer devices. We are certainly excited about this opportunity!
