I went to Dale Jr. High and now I have 2 kids there. I will say from the time that I went there, up to today the teaching staff has been vastly improved! I am thankful for them as I have yet to come across a single teacher/ Assistant Principle/ or Principle that has not made themselves available for any questions or concerns. I receive timely updates on my kids grades/homework and get immediate answers when I call or write an email when I have a question! Thank you Dale Staff!!!! You are doing a fantastic job !!!!

I wanted to give a shout out to Mr. "U" (Uriquidez) for being such an awesome teacher and bringing history to life for my son! He has never showed any interest until now. I love to see when my child comes home educating me on history! Thank you Mr. U!
