Message from the Principal                                       

Welcome to the Dimmitt Middle School! I hope our site can help you find the necessary information you are looking for about our school. If you do not find the information you are looking for, please call our main office at (425) 204-2801. For suggestions or feedback about our website, please email Jaime Maxie, Assistant Principal, at jaime.maxie@rentonschools.us

As our Home page reads, "Dimmitt Middle School is a diverse and vibrant community of learners..." That sentence says it all. Students and staff from a variety of backgrounds walk through our halls daily, providing opportunities for us to learn from and about one another, as we join together as a learning community. Having the opportunity to learn, work, and plan with people different from ourselves is one of the most profoundly educational experiences there is. It is for these reasons I am honored to be the new Principal of Dimmitt Middle School.

At Dimmitt, three goals drive our work. The first is Mathematics. We strive to ensure that each student meets or exceeds grade level mathematics standards. The second is Literacy. We want our students to read, write, and communicate with proficiency. In support of these two goals, we offer a range of instructional programs intended to challenge students to achieve at the highest level. Additionally, Dimmitt teachers put in extensive time meeting together, assessing student performance, developing and discussing instructional strategies, and crafting interventions to assist and challenge students. Learning is not just for students at Dimmitt; the staff is continually refining their professional practice.

In order for students to excel academically, they require support from both the school and family. Our third goal of Equity and Access is focused on ensuring that every student and family has access to a range of supports, services, activities, and information that will help them make the most of every opportunity we offer at Dimmitt.

Again, thank you for visiting our website. If you happen to visiting Dimmitt anytime soon, please stop in and introduce yourself. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or thoughts you would like to discuss further. I can be reached at (425) 204-2801 or by emailing at anna.horton@rentonschools.us.

Go Vikings!

Anna Horton
Principal
