Directly adjacent to the city's sports complex, beautiful tree-lined park, mountain bike trail, and Ice House Theatre, Mount Dora Middle School is just blocks away from the historic downtown district of Mount Dora. In the past two years, due to residential growth in the area, Mount Dora Middle School's student population has increased by 200 students bringing our current enrollment to 860. We challenge our students by adjusting our curriculum to include diverse academic learning opportunities. In addition, we have before and after school clubs to include STEM, Robotics, Student Government Association, National Junior Honor Society, athletics, and include YMCA student-driven activities. Mount Dora Middle School's goal is to promote student academic, social, and cultural growth.
Mount Dora Middle School will create and support a safe, caring learning environment in which all students and adults feel welcomed, respected, and an important part of the school community. We believe each student deserves to be successful. Our family centered environment strives to develop confidence in students as we learn together and support one another, value differences in others, and become responsible citizens.
Recognizing that all students are unique, the mission of Mount Dora Middle School is to ensure that all students feel loved, respected, and encouraged while being inspired, educated, and prepared as lifelong learners and productive citizens in our global society.
