Student Clever Sign in

This year we are using a website portal called Clever. Clever is a one-stop spot to get all the important links that your students use. Not only does Clever have the most used links, some of the programs that are supported will also auto-log your student in! No remembering a dozen different usernames and passwords!! 


To access Clever, you need to use the Chrome browser and go to:


Then you will "Log in with Google" using your school assigned FULL email address (with the at the end) and password.

Then you will install the Clever Extension - just follow the link and click install. (If you do not do this step, the links will not auto-log you in!!!) - you do not need to do this step on Chromebooks.

You should be able to then click on any of the links and will be auto logged into MOST of the programs :)


There are a few that still do not support Clever, so those you will still have to manually log into. Your teacher will make sure you have the correct passwords for those.


There is also a Clever app for the iPad if you use that instead of a computer.


**Clever does NOT work with Android Tablets and cell phones**


Clever works BEST with Chromebooks:




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.

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!
