DMS Vision

At DMS every student's best interests comes first, every single day!

DMS Mission

At Decker Middle School we will build a community of lifelong learners who have a sense of pride and integrity, in a safe, welcoming, creative, and inclusive environment in order to be college and career-ready in today’s society.

DMS Motto

On Time, On Task, and On a Mission!


Welcome Back!

On the first day of school we will assist all scholars with getting to their Raven's Nest class period class. All staff members will have a comprehensive list of all scholars classes. You or your scholar can also check their schedule by logging into Skyward with the log-in credentials they used last year. The schedule in Skyward is the schedule we will use. At this point in time, while we await a Skyward update, the name of the teacher may not be correct, but the class and room number are correct.

All scholars will receive a new paper copy of their schedule and learn the expectations at DMS, in Raven's Nest, then transition to their next class. Our bell schedule is posted below.

Parents--we need you!

We are looking for parents to become members of the DMS Parent Teacher Association (PTA). This is an opportunity to really help our scholars in ways we may not be able to internally. You have the perspective of the family member so we would really appreciate it if we had our parents join PTA and become active fixtures on our campus. Here is the link to join.
