We pledge to our students and parents that this will be a wonderful year filled with quality, engaging, meaningful, and rigorous work in our classrooms, along with some fun and special times through many extracurricular activities and clubs, performing arts groups, and athletic teams and events as we continue our new traditions at DeSana and create even more. Working together, we are quite confident that we will be able to plan and achieve great things with our young Dragons!
Our staff of highly qualified professional educators and support personnel is committed to providing our students many opportunities --- both inside and outside of the classroom --- for high caliber learning, continual growth, leadership skills development, community service, and achievement at a high level of excellence! We pledge that this will be our focus daily, and we invite and encourage our parents to work in partnership with us to optimize the opportunities in all five facets of our DeSana program - - - Academics (first & foremost always!), The Arts, Athletics, Activities, and Altruistic Endeavors.
DeSana Middle School is located in the southwestern area of Forsyth County, on James Road, which is right off of Union Hill Road, which runs off of McFarland Parkway. Our state-of-the-art facility is a gorgeous, two-story school, with an interior design that is bright, sleek, and modern. The latest in educational technology can be found throughout our school, and there is plenty of flexible space and furnishings for collaborative group work for both students and teachers. While natural light abounds within our school, the grounds around our building provide many possibilities for outdoor learning, and include an outdoor classroom, several areas for outside activities, an athletic field, and an established woodlands area, filled with many hardwoods and a stream running through it. We are, indeed, very fortunate to have such great outdoor space for our students to use!
