The mission of the Dassel-Cokato Middle School is to encourage a positive attitude towards learning while preparing students with transferable and meaningful skills for life in a global society.
The Dassel-Cokato Middle School program is designed to meet the special needs of middle level students. The program strives to be transitional in nature, providing students the "bridge" between the self-contained classroom of the elementary school and the departmentalized curriculum of the high school.
To achieve the broad goals of this vision, the Dassel-Cokato Middle School recognizes the importance of the environment in which children work. If we expect them to develop individual capacities in a wide variety of activities, the setting must be flexible and allow for risk taking. Worthwhile social attitudes can only be expected where both the children and adults have respect for one another, are friendly, and care for each other's needs.
