Welcome to the Dorothy McElhinney Middle School web site. We hope that our site will provide you with valuable information regarding our school program. Please browse through our website to find information about our visual and performing arts mission, the school’s procedures, student expectations and staff contacts.
In addition to the strong academic foundation that has been established in the Murrieta Valley Unified School District, Dorothy McElhinney Middle School has an additional emphasis on the Visual and Performing Arts. The arts are addressed through both integration within the regular curriculum and focused study on the various arts in and of themselves. Students will be exposed to regular, standards-based instruction in dance, visual art, drama, and music. Our staff is committed to the power of the arts in the lives of our students.
I am looking forward to working with the students, staff and parents at Dorothy McElhinney Middle School. We have assembled an exceptional group of teachers, counselors and support staff. Together we are committed to building student success in academics and the arts.
