De Pere Middle School

Principal's Message

Welcome to De Pere Middle School 

We are a school of 638 7th and 8th grade students and 85 staff members residing at 700 Swan Road, De Pere, WI.

Our staff are dedicated to the academic, social and emotional growth of every student. We are committed to fostering a culture of respect, responsibility and trust in a safe environment which enables all to be successful in a global community.

During these early adolescent years students are engaged in learning through GRR, Gradual Release of Responsibility, collaboration, and inquiry models. We are one of a few middle schools in the area to provide a 20 minute recess at lunch time, believing that movement and socializing are vital components of a teenager’s school day.

There are a growing number of sports and extracurricular opportunities for DPMS students. Our goal is to have 75% percent of our students involved in a school sponsored club or activity. We believe that student involvement is essential to keeping our students engaged in their learning. Please peruse our web page and calendar for the plethora of events at DPMS.

As you enter our building you will see the phrase; The Best Place to WORK, The Best Place to TEACH, the Best Place to LEARN. This is our middle school mantra and we hope you discover it to be true.

Please do not hesitate to call with any questions about DPMS. We can be reached at 920.337.1024.
