Daleville, Ala. (WDHN)—For the first time since 2009 Daleville has a middle school that is in a separate wing of the high school.
It currently has a student body of 350 fifth-through-eighth graders’.
Despite the pandemic, Principal Dr. Chris Mitten says its been a good school year thus far. During the summer break,
the school district will spend around a million dollar to renovate the classrooms along with “upgrading” the
outside middle school entrance.
Dr. Mitten says “all the building will have drop-ceilings, LED lighting and updated to provide the best learning atmosphere for our students as we possibly can. This section of
the building hasn’t actively been used for ten years.”
Recently, Daleville City School Superintendent, Dr. Lisa Stamps, says she received the architect’s plans
for the renovation.
Dr. Stamps says “we’ll have a state-of-the-art stem lab, we’ll have a nice dining hall and a really nice media center in the middle school.”
School officials say it creates a better learning environment when you separate the high school students
from their younger peers.
