Welcome to Derby Middle School
The fundamental goal of Derby middle school is to develop confident, compassionate, intellectually curious young people, who are well prepared to excel throughout their high school years and beyond. Excitement and enthusiasm are two words that describe our middle school students. It is a unique time in children's lives when they can fully explore new activities, interests, and ideas.
As a principal, I am most proud of our school's commitment to the development of character. Whether it is through classroom activities such as writing letters to wounded soldiers, to students volunteering as Links to our special needs students, to school-wide community service projects, our students demonstrate their good character every day.
If you are a parent of our community and have any questions or concerns, please contact me. If you are considering having your child attend Derby Middle School, I welcome you to visit our school for a personal tour. Please contact my office to set up an appointment.
