Principal's Picture
  • Welcome to The Bull Pen!

    I am so excited to enter yet another wonderful year leading N. L. Dillard Middle School. This year, like all years, will be a year like no other, but we are committed to serving all students here at NLDMS and ensuring a safe learning environment where all of our students can excel. 

     Parents and students get ready for a wonderful year. Middle school is the land of reinvention and self-discovery. We hope to be guides for you along the way to make these years some of the best years of your life. We have a wonderful faculty and staff devoted to ensuring that all students receive a quality education based on 21st Century Skills as we work to make citizens of an undetermined future. You will hear us say we are the home of the #gamechangers and we stand firm on making sure each student realizes the absolute potential of being a unique force for change in the world.

    Students at NLDMS will experience a team approach of core classes consisting of math, language arts, social studies, and science. To complement those classes, we also offer a selection of elective classes meant to reinforce and strengthen concepts taught in core classes. Electives also allow students to explore other curricula and career opportunities as we prepare students for college and careers. We offer a wide variety of clubs for students to experience some of their interests that lie outside of the classroom and offer a variety of school sports as well.

     Please join us and communicate your needs to us as we work to fully support all students with a personalized experience. We will make sure to communicate with you as well as we all work together to grow our AMAZING Bulls into awesome Buccaneers!

     As you will always hear me say, this is Mrs. Gantt signing off from the home of the bulls where we always say #imagamechanger and now we say #dillardstrong.

     See you at school!
