Dent Middle has grown me into the person I am today. Although I will be attending Richland Northeast High in the coming academic year, this school holds so many memories of academic achievements and fun times with peers. As part of The Learning Collaborative magnet, my teachers have inspired me to reach beyond my limits in every area of my learning and have grown me as a writer and thinker. I cannot be more greatful for the growth that I have seen in myself while a student here these past three years.

I enjoyed my time at Dent Middle School. The teachers cared about the students well-being as we as the students education. There were a lot of clubs offered to the students and extracurricular activities.
My experience as a Dent Middle School student was full of ups and downs but overall I had a great time. I met such great friends I'm still close with to this day. Also I learned more about myself as a person and If i never attended this school I know I wouldn't be the person I am today
