On September 22, 2016, DDE Middle School will join hundreds of thousands of people around the globe for the third annual Character Day - a global initiative where school districts, organizations and families of all sizes screen films on the science of character development and then dive into discussions about the importance of developing character strengths such as resilience, grit, empathy, courage and kindness. We are very excited to be taking part in Character Day!

Welcome to DDE Middle School
Welcome to the Dwight D. Eisenhower (DDE) Middle School! We are located in West Berlin, Camden county, NJ. Our middle school houses grades 4 – 8. There are approximately 330 students total enrolled. Upon graduating from DDE our students attend Overbrook Regional High School in Pine Hill. We are proud to be a Choice School for the state of New Jersey.
In addition to the core subjects - language arts, math, science and social studies - all DDE students enjoy special area classes in health & physical education, multi-media music, art, technology and open access library. Accelerated Reading and Math supplement the core program and provide opportunities for differentiation and advanced learning in the classrooms. Furthermore, all DDE students are assessed in literacy and math three times per year to provide the educational staff with relevant data to ensure targeted instruction. Students who score below target scores on benchmark assessments are eligible for additional support services through Response to Intervention (RTI).
Our students in grades 6, 7 & 8 have the opportunity to play a variety of sports and to become members of the Student Government Association and National Junior Honor Society. All students can earn Dragon Dollars by displaying our school-wide behavior expectations of being safe, respectful and responsible. These Dragon Dollars make students eligible to earn special privileges.
Parents have full access to their child’s current academic and behavior performance by logging into our student database – OnCourse. In OnCourse parents can see their child’s grades, current assignments and anecdotal behavior information. All teachers may be contacted via OnCourse or telephone (leave a voicemail) or email.
We are confident your children are going to enjoy their middle school experience at DDE!
