Welcome to Dunnellon Middle School
Dunnellon Middle School, working together as partners with our local community, will prepare students for the future. A professional, compassionate staff will provide a challenging, diversified curriculum to meet the individual needs of each student. Our goal is to provide a safe environment, where students are expected to develop the integrity, social, and life skills necessary to become productive citizens.
Dunnellon Middle School has a comprehensive AVID (Advancement via Individual Determination) Program, which helps our AVID students explore the future opportunities available for them in the 3 E’s (Employment, Enlistment, and Enrollment). We also employ the AVID curriculum schoolwide to better support the academic development of our students.
At Dunnellon Middle School, we believe in furnishing experiences that allow students to explore their interests. We offer six high school courses that allow our 8th Grade students to accelerate academically, as well as many opportunities in Career and Technical Education, Fine Arts, Athletics, and Clubs.
Dunnellon Middle School has a need for volunteers. If you have the time to volunteer and work with our students, please see Ms. Bennett in the Front Office for more information and complete a volunteer application on the MCPS website. When you volunteer, you greatly contribute to the mission of Dunnellon Middle School, as well as making a difference in children’s lives.
