Druid Hills Middle School is an International Baccalaureate World School in the DeKalb County School District in Decatur, Georgia. It serves students in 6th, 7th and 8th grades from Avondale, Briar Vista, Fernbank, Laurel Ridge and McLendon elementary schools in Atlanta and Decatur, Georgia. It is a diverse school, with students from all different backgrounds - and more than 47 countries are represented!
Our mission is to develop engaged critical thinkers, with an intercultural view of the world, who are responsible, understanding, compassionate and free of stereotypes.
By strengthening their foundation of reading, writing and problem solving, students will become self-motivated lifelong learners.
Our PTSA (Parent, Teacher, Student Association) has a weekly newsletter called The Dragon News. It has everything you need to know about what's going on at school and in our school community. It is sent out every Tuesday.
