School History FAQs

Tell me about the history/background of Dana Middle School.

Dana Middle School, located in the Point Loma community, reopened in August 1998 as a sixth grade school after having been closed since 1983. In September 2001, we added fifth grade to complete our configuration as a grades 5-6 middle school. We draw from the six feeder elementary schools in the Point Loma cluster. We also accept students on a space-available basis through the Open Enrollment Program. Our students feed to Correia Middle (7th and 8th grade only) and Point Loma High School (9th through 12th grade).

Our current enrollment is approximately 750 students. Our highly trained staff serves an ethnically diverse and bright population of students through a variety of programs, including regular education, special education, Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) cluster and seminar classes, and Structured English Immersion and Mainstreamed English Cluster classes for our English Learners.

We are proud of the extensive support we receive from an involved community. We are dedicated to the education of the total child. We are committed to providing a challenging curriculum that inspires academic, artistic, and physical excellence while fostering positive self-esteem, respect, enthusiasm, and cooperation.
