What makes Destiny Middle School Unique
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 students bring a multitude of gifts and potential with 12% English Language Learners, and 23% 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.
"I chose a school where important decisions can be made for individual students’ needs immediately—whether it involves curriculum, behavioral support, and academic enrichment.
I chose a school where just as often as we ask ourselves, “What have we done right?” we stress the question, “What can we do better?”
