Welcome back to school!

Welcome to Dakota Hills Middle School. We are a school of just over 1,200 students located in Eagan, a southern suburb of the Twin Cities. We have a dynamic staff of educators who love children, identify with young adolescents, and are committed to the success of each student. Over 70 percent of our teachers hold advanced degrees. Most importantly, all of our teachers exhibit a great passion for both their students and class subject areas. Dakota Hills offers enthusiastic and challenging instruction by teachers who focus on personal relationships with students. Students experience a balance of challenge and support with high expectations within a nurturing environment.

When you enroll your child at Dakota Hills, you will become members of our engaged, supportive, and close-knit educational family.

Our students consistently earn scholarly honors distinguishing Dakota Hills as a school that scores at or among the top schools in reading, math, and science assessments for both Minnesota and the metropolitan area. Our students move on to Eagan High School as the next step in their college preparatory or vocational learning. Understanding that all young adolescents experience amazing cognitive, physical, and emotional during their three years at Dakota Hills, we are attentive to the academic and social-emotional needs of our students.

We have active Parent and Site Councils that help us to stay connected and attuned to our community. We are blessed with a supportive Eagan community as our parents are interested and involved in the learning and growth of the children at DHMS.
