Principal's Message

Welcome to Dana Middle School!


The 2023-24 school year is here and we are excited to have you join us on the journey ahead!  Dana is a special place full of caring individuals who work hard to create the best possible learning experience for all students that enter our gates.  We are proud to call ourselves Dana Mariners and look forward to meeting you soon!


Our theme at Dana is Anchored Around Community, with all aspects of our school centered on building strong, respectful and collaborative partnerships among our stakeholders: students, teachers, staff, parents.  Our three main focus areas at Dana are removing barriers to student learning, building community, and fostering student leadership, voice, equity and inclusion.


There are many ways for our students to get involved at Dana Middle School beyond attending class each day.  We have the 210 Sports League that competes against other local middle schools in a variety of sports.  Numerous clubs happen everyday at lunch and meet throughout the year.  There are also opportunities to serve on our ASB, Lighthouse Team, Spirit Advisory, or become a WEB leader in 8th grade.  We encourage all our students to be proactive and find a place to plug in.

Dana parents can also get involved in a variety of ways, though the first and easiest step is to join the Dana PTSA .  The Dana PTA is an outstanding support to the school, run by a wonderful group of parents.  All levels of involvement are greatly appreciated!
