    Originally built in 1966 as a high school, the building was renovated into the middle school in 1998. Today the 157,000-square foot facility houses nearly 900 students in grades 6-8. The building boasts a full size gym, a 1,000+ seat auditorium, a card access system, and internet/television/ phone access in all classrooms.

    Our middle level instructional program is delivered through an interdisciplinary team format which stresses subject matter as well as pupil development. This configuration helps students by providing consistency while encouraging them to perceive the wholeness that exists in learning.  In addition, our middle school facilitates student transition from a self-contained elementary school setting to a departmentalized high school setting. The interdisciplinary team organization assists the students in successfully traversing the period of time between the elementary and high school years.

  • Safe2Say Something Reporting System Now Available

    All schools in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, including DTSD, have adopted use of the “Safe2Say Something” anonymous tip line as a means of improving campus safety and improving school climate. The tip line is operated and monitored 24/7 by the Office of the Attorney General where tips are reviewed, classified, and forwarded to the appropriate school district. Tips that are found to contain information that may indicate a "life safety" issue are immediately forwarded to the appropriate county emergency dispatch center.

  • January is National School Board Recognition Month

    January is National School Board Recognition Month - a great time to recognize our locally elected community members who selflessly volunteer their time, talents and energy in support of high-quality public education here in Derry Township. The time spent in bi-weekly board meetings represents just a small fraction of the hours DTSD school board members dedicate to their posts. Board members contribute hundreds of hours each year crafting policies, building fiscally responsible budgets, carefully listening to constituent input, along with serving on committees & as delegates to community organizations.
