Dover Air Force Middle Ranked in Top 50 Middle Schools in U.S.

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. - Dover Air Force Base Middle School is ranked among the top 50 best middle schools in the U.S., according to thebestschools.org.

DABM ranked 35th on the list based on several weighted factors including academic excellence, NAEP scores, state assessment scores, received awards and rankings, geographical diversity, and reputation.

Specifically, DABM was ranked 35 due to standard academics required by the state, the school offering football, field hockey, basketball, soccer, softball, and track and field, according to thebestschools.org.

DABM also offers a club called "Families Dealing with Separation or Deployment" which offers support for students who have one or more parents who are or have been deployed.

"Dover Air Base Middle is certainly proud to be named one of the best middle schools in the country," said Dr. David Santore, principal at DABM. "We continue to set very high standards for academics every day; it is an honor to be recognized nationally for these efforts. Our continual success is due to the outstanding hard work of our students and teachers at DABM, along with the tremendous support we receive from the military parents and community on a daily basis."

The school has nearly 200 students spanning grades 6-8.
