This school is great! As a student, I am very happy to have developed a growth of maturity and have thrived throughout my 3 years here at Dartmouth. Very supportive school with great activities, students, and staff. I want to become a middle school teacher and look forward to coming back here as a teacher!

My daughter LOVES all of her teachers. This is a HUGE win in my book. 100% of her teachers are extremely educated and organized. New Principal has amazing energy and seems to use his popularity with the children in a positive way (as a role model/leader vs. power trip/controlling others)

I have just been hired to teach at Dartmouth and I could not be more excited.

I was a student at Dartmouth MANY years ago and seriously had anxiety about my daughter going to any public middle school. She has completed 6th grade at Dartmouth and I have to say that her experience has been ideal and my expectations were completely blown away. She went into 6th grade vulnerable ...  Read more

I was also a student at Dartmouth, back in the day. My daughter is heading in to 7th grade there and we cannot say enough great things about the school, the staff and the curriculum.

Test Year: 2012
Dartmouth Middle School
Union Elementary School District
* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
