Greetings and welcome to Douglas Middle School (DMS), the home of the Eagles! My name is Rita Walker and I am thankful and excited to serve as the principal at DMS. We are committed to providing innovative lessons based on the College and Career Ready Standards to all of our students. Our teachers incorporate technology in order to meet the needs of the 21st century learner. You will find that we hold high expectations for our students both in the classroom and in our extracurricular programs. We want students to feel confident and secure during their time at DMS. We believe this can best be accomplished through mutual respect and consideration for others. The decisions we make at DMS are made in the best interests and needs of our students.
