    SCHOOL PROFILE

    Dunnellon Middle School is located in the town of Dunnellon, Florida, between the Withlacoochee and Rainbow Rivers.

    Since 1937, the present site has served as an elementary and high school prior to being changed into a middle school. The facility encompasses 21 acres with the circa 1937 auditorium undergoing state historical renovation in 2004.

     

    The current student body of 630 students consists of 60% majority and 40% minority in grades 6th through 8th. Our free and reduced meal program serves 75% of the students.

     

    Academically, the school has achieved either an A, B, or C grade from the State of Florida. These grades are based on FCAT since Florida's school improvement and accountability was implemented in 1991. The Continuous Improvement Model (CIMS) has been integrated into school practice for the past 4 years. Additionally, the school curriculum now consists of more inclusive practices for our exceptional education student population.
