Attention Parents! 

 Reversing an Opioid Overdose with Narcan

 
Welcome to Derby Middle School! We are proud to educate the sixth, seventh and eighth graders of “Connecticut’s Smallest City”. Originally settled as early as 1622, Derby was established in 1675 receiving its name from across the Atlantic, Derby, England. Derby was later incorporated just before the Revolutionary War, May 13, 1775. Over the centuries Derby has relied on the benefits of being established at the confluence of the Housatonic River and the Naugatuck River, providing transportation and power for growing industries.  Geographically Derby occupies five square miles along these two rivers and supports just under 13,000 residents. The Derby Public Schools educates students from pre-school through twelfth grade. Derby Middle School was opened in January of 2010 and offers the latest educational structures for teachers and students. Students are provided with one to one laptops and connectivity to allow them to explore the best that the internet has to offer. The faculty at DMS is a close knit family of professionals that emphasize academic, social and emotional growth during these middle years. Sharing the same campus as Derby High School, DMS gets to reap the benefits of many of the high school programs as well. Derby Middle School is indeed a special place, one that will help students bloom into respectful, inquisitive and determined young adults. 

MISSION STATEMENT 

The Derby Middle School Professional Learning Community (students, faculty, staff, parent and administration) is committed to developing healthy, productive, and contributing members of 21st century society who are prepared to accept and deal with the inevitability of change. At Derby Middle School our mission is to create an educational environment in which every student can learn and advance to high school with the attitudes, understandings and competencies that ensure his/her success as a life long learner, with assessment driving instruction for our improved student learning.
