    Principal's Message

    Dear Charger Families and the Deltona Community,

    I want to take a moment to thank all of you for your continued support of our students and school.  Due to your encouragement and involvement, our school continues to be a trail blazer in the area of academic performance and student educational opportunities.

    For example, results from the rigorous 2016-17 State of Florida FSA and EOC exams show that Deltona Middle is the highest performing middle school in West Volusia! Our school earned an overall grade of “B” and had the highest accumulated school grade points in our area.  Likewise, our school was recognized by Governor Rick Scott as being in the top ten percent of all middle schools in the state in the areas of English Language Arts (top 7%) and Mathematics (top 9%) improvement when comparing the 2015-16 and 2016-17 school years.  We not only continue to lead the way in student achievement, but our students have also earned recognition for their individual and group work in our award winning band, chorus, orchestra and Future Farmers of America programs.  Each of these programs are looked upon as being among the most competitive and accomplished groups in Central Florida.

    Likewise, Deltona Middle continues to provide outstanding educational opportunities for our students.  Currently, we have four successful academies at our school.  They are the Agri-Science Academy, Performing Arts Academy, STEM Academy and the Community Involvement Academy.  For the 2018-19 school year we will be adding the Health & Sports Academy and the much anticipated Culinary and Tourism Academy.  As we move into next year close to seventy percent of our students will be involved in an academy program. 

    Finally, not only is our school progressive in the accomplishments and educational opportunities of our students, we are also the only secondary school in Volusia County that will have a new facility built on property to house our programs.  Currently, we are working with the School District and award winning C. T. Hsu & Associates architects to design and build a state of the art facility that will not only meet the dynamic needs of our current educational programs, but also be ready for the unknown changes to public education that will occur over the next several decades.

    If you are a perspective parent interested in visiting our school. I encourage you to contact me by phone or email.  I will be honored to take you on a tour of Deltona Middle so you too can see firsthand the great accomplishments of our students and staff.


    Kind regards,

    Dr. Rick Inge
