About East Middle School


 The mission of DeSoto East Middle School is to achieve academic and social excellence through knowledge, respect, and responsibility.


DeSoto East Middle School (formerly DeSoto Junior High School) is part of the DeSoto Independent School district.  The campus, now known as DeSoto East Middle School, opened in 1962.  It served as the district's high school from 1962 until 1976 when the high school moved to its current location at 600 Eagle Drive. At that time the campus was renamed DeSoto Junior High School and served grades seven and eight.  When DeSoto West Junior High School opened in 1987, the campus was renamed DeSoto East Junior High School.  As part of the district-wide grade realignment plan during the 2007-2008 school year, DeSoto East became a middle school serving grades six, seven, and eight.

Coronovirus update

SCHOOL CLOSURE & SERVICES UPDATE

To slow the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in our community, all DeSoto ISD schools will close indefinitely. This action follows advice from the Dallas County Health and Human Services department (DCHHS). We recognize the significant impact this extended closure will have on the entire community, especially for families who depend on the district for critical services. While our classrooms are empty, our work on behalf of children continues. We have activated at-home learning, our teachers are prepared to begin distance instruction, and Chartwells, DeSoto ISD Food and Child Nutrition Services provider, will distribute meals at select campus locations. These sites will become central locations for family and student resource distribution in the coming weeks. Please expect additional messages with updates and visit www.DeSotoISD.org/CoronaVirus for more information. Thank you for working with us as we unite with organizations across the community to respond to COVID-19.
