Welcome to Deer Path Middle School!

It is an honor to be leading such a high-achieving school with a dynamic team of professionals. Our school is not only focused on the pillars of academic success but also the emotional wellness of each child. With this, Deer Path offers an array of extra-curricular programs such as inter-scholastic athletics, robotics, debate, yearbook, digital arts, student leadership and many more. We believe creating opportunities beyond the classroom will assist in finding the thirst for knowledge and opening doors to opportunity both socially and intellectually.

As leaders, one of our responsibilities is to encourage teachers to innovate new practices that engage our students and help them connect what they learn in the classroom to the world beyond. Our focus is on skills that will prepare students for our ever-changing global economy. We believe that skills and knowledge should not be separate in planning daily lessons. Our faculty strives to deliberately infuse these skills into daily curriculum while creating a student-centered classroom.

Furthermore, Deer Path and District 67 have a very supportive and collaborative partnership with our parents and APT. With this, we can truthfully say that that we have a community who comes together often for the benefit of our students.

Lastly, and this goes without saying, we have amazing students here at DPM. It is a privilege to work with students who inspire us everyday through their selflessness, hard work, tenacity, intellect and desire to learn.

Welcome to Deer Path! We are confident you will find this to be a wonderful place for all.
