Message from the Principal

Welcome to Denison Middle School. We house grades 6-8 and have a student enrollment just over 500 students. We opened the doors to the district's newest facility in 2008. You can find us just north of Denison High School.

At DMS we are proud to serve a linguistically and ethnically diverse population. Our students come to us from a number of locations around the globe and represent more than 10 languages.  At school our students have the opportunity to be involved in Fine Arts productions, Project Lead the Way, Ringneck Outdoor Club, Science Bound, and Character Council. Our Monarch athletic teams participate in competitions in football, volleyball, cross country, basketball, wrestling, and track and field.

Our Purple Pride Pledge: "I pledge to take pride in my behavior, my school work, and my building." 

We focus on the 6 pillars of character because, "Charatcter counts, everywhere, all the time! 

When I take pride in my behavior in the lunchroom, I…
use good manners, 
speak in Level 2 voice or less, 
keep my hands and feet to myself,
bring my lunch card every day. and
invite others to join me.
 
When I take pride in my building in the lunchroom, I…
take care of tables, seats, utensils and trays, 
Store my chromebook in my locker or bag, and
leave no trace.
 
Ask your middle schooler how lunch is going and if they earned Pride Seats for the week!
