    Construction is beginning on the new East Gresham Elementary School Thursday, March 8th. Therefore, parking will no longer be allowed in the parking lot connecting East Gresham Elementary and Dexter McCarty Middle Schools. Please note that this situation will cause heavy congestion on SE 5th Street during drop off and pick up times at both schools. Gresham Police are aware of the potential issues that may occur, and will be present to assist in safety and movement of traffic during these times. Also, please know that parking will be severely limited when visiting for events and activities; please plan accordingly.

Mr. John George

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

Greetings! Welcome to 2018, and welcome to the new 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
