Our Philosophy

“Provide a rigorous educational experience for all students at their individual level of need.”
- Lev Vygotsky

The Dana Middle staff believes achievement should not precede opportunity. Instead opportunity should precede achievement. We developed a rigorous Honors program that builds upon GATE by increasing access to high performaing students who did not have the opportunity to be assessed using the the strategy developed by the SDUSD GATE Department. 

“How, what, and who we celebrate reflects what and who we value, and how we celebrate our past reflects ultimately who we take ourselves to be today.” Eddie Glaude Jr.
