DGF Middle School

Welcome to DGF Middle School!

DGF Middle School houses all students in grades 6 - 8. We aim to offer the middle school concept to our students including an environment rich in academic core offerings, exploratory/enrichment classes, student driven intervention classes, an advisory program, and extracurricular activities.

In addition, we believe in helping our students become career and college ready! Through AVID programming/classes and STEAM activities, we hope to have students learning more about themselves and post-high school opportunities. We also help students obtain skills necessary to be successful during their academic careers. STEAM is the integration of science, technology, engineering, art, and math classes. We offer activities and programs to support STEAM opportunities for our students.

We believe in partnering with our parents and community! DGF Middle School staff welcomes the opportunity to work together with our community and parents.

If you have questions, concerns, or needs, please feel free to call, visit me at school, or email me at hcritchley@dgf.k12.mn.us.
