Principal's MessagE

Welcome To DAR Middle School!

It is my distinct privilege to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year. This will be my fifth year at DAR Middle School, and I feel privileged to work with the staff, the community, and the DAR. I can truly say that this community of people is rich in pride and committed to the education of the whole child.


DAR Middle School has distinguished itself as a unique place that is devoted to building civic responsibility as well as providing all students with the tools needed for success. The focus for this success is fostered through building the tenants of good character: respect, caring, trustworthiness, responsibility, citizenship, and fairness. We at DAR Middle School are so fortunate to have the support of the community, the Marshall County Board of Education, and most of all the great organization of the DAR.


We continuously have a great deal to celebrate at DAR Middle School in the community, on the field, and in the classroom. We are awarded daily by the smiles on our students' faces.


I am available to meet with you or answer any questions that you may have. Please call our office anytime at (256)728-5950.



Tim Isbill, DAR Middle School Principal



Attention Parents:

Dear Parents,

The upheaval and anxiety caused by the pandemic has impacted everyone’s lives more than we could ever have imagined. We know that many of you are juggling the unexpected challenges of your children’s remote learning while caring for families and dealing with the impact of the shutdowns on your own work. We’d like to know how you feel your children’s remote learning is going—for them, and for you. Your input will let us know where we might need to give your children—and you—additional support. And although we hate to think about it, these insights might help us respond effectively should we ever again have to make a similar, sudden transition. Please take a few minutes to express your thoughts by completing the PARENT survey linked below. Additionally, your child has been sent a student survey to his or her student email account and those surveys are also linked below. Please make sure that your child completes their version of the survey as well. If you have any questions, please let us know.

Thank you for your input
