Principal's Message

     At Damascus Middle School we seek to create a challenging learning environment that encourages high expectations for success.  It is our goal to provide developmentally appropriate instruction that allows for the individual differences of students and accommodates a variety of learning styles.  We strongly believe learning is maximized when it takes place in an environment enriched with support and encouragement.
 
     It is my desire that each teacher, staff member, support person, student, and parent take pride in belonging to this community of learners.
