At Dunedin Highland Middle School we strive for academic personalization, which enables all students to learn, achieve, and succeed with full options upon entering high school. To ensure success for our students, Dunedin Highland Middle School has implemented the wall-to-wall academy model. All students are enrolled in one of our three academies: the Arts & Technology Academy, the Center for Gifted Studies, or the Performing Arts and Motion Academy. Each of the three academies acts as a smaller learning community within the school. Students have a specific team of teachers and staff working to provide rigorous and relevant instruction while meeting the unique needs and interests of the students. The model has allowed for more personalized attention to our students, leading to an increase in academic engagement, decrease in discipline issues, and have improved the sense of belonging for all.
