About Destiny Middle School
With an enrollment of 275 students, Destiny Middle School enrolls children from diverse neighborhoods in the Tacoma area. Students benefit from engaging with peers from Tacoma’s Eastside, Hilltop and South End neighborhoods as well as Lakewood, Spanaway and Puyallup. Our inaugural class brings a multitude of gifts and potential with 12% English Language Learners, and 18% utilizing Special Education programming.
Our families have been actively involved in the creation of Destiny. Our Advisory committee, consisting of 20+ families and community leaders met monthly to give the critical input and local context to the Green Dot Model to include the school name, colors, and community engagement strategy.
Destiny Middle School launched August 2015, starting with our first sixth grade class, and will roll up to a full 6-8th grade middle school.
The work of Green Dot Public Schools is driven by our unwavering belief in the potential of ALL students, eliminating barriers to learning and continuously striving for student success. We believe all stakeholders are critical to the education process to include families, community, staff and decision makers.
