Dundalk Middle School is nestled in the heart of Dundalk, a community steeped in tradition and history. DMS continues to promote and celebrate rigorous instruction and student achievement. The students work diligently to develop the academic, social, and emotional attributes that will enable them to be successful in college and/or the workplace. Through the school's rigorous and relevant instructional program, students will become life-long learners who will reach their potential as productive citizens in a global economy and multi-cultural society. DMS was a 2014 Clean Green 15 Champion and became re-certified as a Sustainable Maryland Green School in 2019.

In 2018, Dundalk Middle School was named an AVID Schoolwide Site of Distinction, the first middle school in Maryland to receive this honor!
