  • School Vision

    Dunedin Highland Middle School will establish a close working relationship with our neighboring community, demonstrating pride and respect for diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds, striving for 100% student success. We look to be a leader in cutting-edge technology, research-based learning strategies, and professionally developed educators. 

    School Mission

    Dunedin Highland Middle School will close the achievement gap and open new learning opportunities to ensure that all of our scholars make academic gains by providing a safe and respectful environment, inspiring excellence in educational practices and student achievement, and demonstrating pride in our school community.

    Respect, Excellence, and Pride!



  • Our SAC and PTA will meet on Wednesday November 28th.  SAC will start at 6pm in the main office, and PTA will start at 6:30pm in Highlander Hall.  Our PTA has invited a number of High School Application Programs who will speak and have information to share about their programs.  While this is a timely meeting for our 8th grade families, it is never too early for our 6th and 7th grade parents to begin exploring options for high school.  We hope to see everyone there!
