Dolan Middle School was founded in 1948 (the year the first polaroid camera went on sale!), and is located on the border of Springdale and Glenbrook. Dolan has evolved over the years from a traditional junior high to its more recent middle school curriculum model. Like the City of Stamford, the school is diverse in its racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic student population. Many students have more than one language spoken at home, and a high percentage have one hour of Spanish instruction included in their daily schedule.
Dolan offers numerous programs – The Scholar Academy, Dolan DASH afterschool program to name a few. There is upcoming production of “Shrek the Musical Jr.”, Dolan Baseball Team is City Champion 2016. Go Raiders!
Students participating in the Dolan DASH program will receive academic support and homework help in literacy and math, then break into enrichment clusters of their choice.
The mission of Dolan Middle School is to educate all students to the fullest extent of their individual talents and abilities. To that end, they provide a safe, nurturing environment that fosters social, emotional, and physical health. The school’s instruction focuses on the acquisition of skills necessary for students to become critical thinkers, problem solvers, and communicators in our rapidly changing technological society. By personal example, and in partnership with family and community, they encourage lifelong learning, appreciation for diversity and respect for all.
