• The Warrior Way

    Be Respectful; Be Responsible; Be Reliable; Be Safe

    The Warrior Way is how we define our expected interactions with one another at Danville Community Middle School. The Warrior Way is a high-character way of being and behaving in all we do. The Warrior Way makes the Danville Difference.

    Character development at DCMS is about helping students learn and practice positive character traits. When we build good character, we build strong communities. In the school community, character development is intertwined into programs and practices- it becomes a way of life. Student success is dependent on a safe, caring, and inclusive learning environment where all students feel valued. This starts by teaching our students about the value of character – respecting themselves and each other, making positive contributions to their school and community, and thinking critically and creatively.
