Spanish students visit Costa Rica
Derby's 8th-grade Spanish students traveled to Costa Rica in March with Sra. Caldwell and Mrs. Gallacher. Students saw crocodiles, monkeys, and sloths in Tortuguero National Park, went zip lining alongside the Arenal Volcano, and swam in La Fortuna waterfall and the Caribbean Sea! Students also engaged in service learning projects and cultural activities during their visit.

Entry Door Safety
For the safety of students and staff, please do NOT open the entry doors for other visitors when you have been buzzed in or when leaving......
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.
