As partners in your child's education, your involvement, support, and active participation are invaluable. Together, we will work collaboratively to ensure that every student receives the support and resources they need to excel.

Whether your child is starting their journey with us or continuing their educational adventure, we are thrilled to welcome them into the Dalton Junior High family. Throughout the school year , we will celebrate their achievements, provide guidance through challenges, and create memorable experiences that will shape their future.
