Helicopter Landing

On May 18, 2017 the Berlin Township Police department, in cooperation with officials from local towns, conducted a police demonstration and a helicopter landing.  This presentation gave the Dwight D. Eisenhower Middle School students an opportunity to see police work in action and to earn a greater appreciation for the work of law enforcement.  DDE Middle School thanks Berlin Township police for a memorable experience.

**Important Sports Information**


Dear Parents,

All students in 6th through 8th grade are eligible to play sports during the 2017-2018 school year. In order for your child to play middle school sports in New Jersey, they must have a complete physical which needs to be documented on the required state paperwork.   Our district physician will be here in the school offering sports physicals on June 7, 2017 from 2:45-5:30pm free of charge.  This physical will cover your student for one full school year.

Your student has been informed of this information and has been given two packets of required paperwork .  All attached paperwork must be returned to the nurse by Wednesday, May 31, 2017  in order for it to be processed and ready for the school physician.  NO PAPERWORK WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER May 31, 2017.    Please read and make sure all parent/student sections are fully completed/signed before returning. If you prefer to see your own physician, the packet is due two weeks before your student’s chosen sport in order for our school physician to review and approve.


Thank you for your time and understanding in the matter while we adhere to the strict state sports requirements.  Please contact me if any questions.

SGA and NJHS Service Project

SGA and NJHS would like to send a sincere thank you to all of you who helped make our “Sandwich Project” such a success.  Our students made over 300 sandwiches to help the Veterans Haven in Winslow.  The Veterans Haven is an organization that helps our veterans find housing, jobs, and a place to sleep. They currently are housing about 100 veterans and expect some more over the holiday. These sandwiches will help tremendously and they were very grateful.  


Thank you again for all your help...we could not have done this without you!

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!
