    A 2007 study from Johns Hopkins University found students who attended less than 90 percent of school in sixth grade were far less likely to graduate. Only 13 percent of students who attended less than 80 percent of sixth grade graduated from high school on time.  We want to help you out! If you are having issues or barriers to your student attending school on a regular basis please let us know and we can assist you. WE WANT YOUR STUDENT HERE!

Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. John George

At Dexter McCarty Middle School we teach to cause a positive result!

Greetings! Welcome to the 2020-21 school year, and welcome to the Dexter McCarty Middle School Website. It is here that we will strive to provide you with any and all relevant information, dates, and announcements that will serve to enhance our students and families' experience during their time as a Hornet. We hope that you will also take the opportunity to visit our facebook page and follow us on Twitter, @DMMShornets, as we expand our presence on social media to keep our families and community up-to-date on the latest happenings at DMMS.

We teach to cause a positive result...
Our mission statement says it all. We, the staff of DMMS, strive to provide an overall educational experience that is focused on academic and social growth for all students. We work hard to provide our students with positive experiences in and out of the classroom that will meet them where they are and get them where they need to be in order to enter high school prepared to graduate. From our school-wide AVID program to our Positive Behavior Support and Intervention program, we work to develop and expand student skill, knowledge, and understanding of what it takes to be successful in school and in life. With a very diverse student population, we work hard to create a culture of inclusion and acceptance of all students, regardless of their backgrounds or circumstances. The staff of DMMS are as hard working, professional, passionate, and compassionate group of educators you will find. We work together to serve all students and to help them realize the rewards of an education. "All Means All" is not just a mantra for us, it is the way we approach every day, every period, every student.

Thank you for visiting our newly updated website and please come back often to view up-to-date information, which will keep you informed about our school.

John George
