DECA Middle is a free, public middle school in Dayton serving 5th-8th grade students. New for the 2016-17 school year and located in a historic building in the heart of Downtown Dayton, DECA Middle demands success of students by providing a quality, engaging, and rigorous college preparatory curriculum. DECA Middle uses the community to help connect real life experiences to the content learned in classrooms. Central to our mission is the development of deep and meaningful relationships with our students.
DECA Middle believes that it is important to raise not only outstanding students who are prepared for college, but outstanding people who will be leaders in their communities. Students of DECA Middle are actively involved in community service hours, receive tutoring from University of Dayton students and have strong partnerships with Westminster Presbyterian Church. DECA Middle has also formed a new partnership with the City of Dayton Human Relations Council to further educate students on how to become leaders in their communities.
