Daniel Morgan Intermediate School is located in historic Winchester, Virginia in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley. The school serves the unique needs of students at the 5th and 6th grade levels. As students transition from their elementary years to their middle school years, DMIS provides a bridge of support. DMIS students leave the more sheltered setting of one or two core teachers in elementary school as they prepare for the middle school setting that typically includes four core teachers in grades 7 and 8. The intermediate students' specialized needs are met through three-person instructional teams; targeted remediation, enrichment and gifted programs; increased opportunities in musical and visual arts; and after-school intramurals, enrichment, and academic support.
Daniel Morgan Intermediate School was originally built as Daniel Morgan Middle School in 1974 for grades 6-8. The school has undergone numerous renovations over the years. The most noted renovation took place between the years of 2003-04 where an extensive addition was built and the original building was updated and remodeled. As of the 2017-2018 school year the building officially hosts two separate schools - Daniel Morgan Middle School (grades 7/8) as well as the newly formed Intermediate School for grades 5/6. Along with the new identity of the Daniel Morgan Intermediate School comes a new mascot - The Generals.
The school is named after the famous Revolutionary War Rifleman, Daniel Morgan. Daniel Morgan (July 6, 1736 – July 6, 1802) was an American pioneer, soldier, and United States Representative from Virginia. After the Revolutionary war, he settled down and built a new house near Winchester, Virginia. He named the home Saratoga after his victory in New York. Daniel Morgan's final resting place is in the nearby historical Mt. Hebron Cemetery in Winchester, Virginia.
