Building Missing Statement – The mission of the Upper Dauphin Area Middle School is to provide a safe environment for students, to encourage them to settle for nothing less than their best, and to build character that will lay the foundation upon which they build their futures.

The Upper Dauphin Area Middle School (UDAMS) serves students in 5th through 8th Grade who reside within the Upper Dauphin Area School District.  The school population is approximately 364 students (2016-17).

To register your child as a student at the UDAMS, please visit our Registration Page.

Welcome to the Upper Dauphin Area Middle school where we provide a safe learning environment for students, we encourage them to settle for nothing less than their best, and we build character that will lay the foundation upon which our students will build their futures. At UDAMS, we build our character through the implementation of our Discovery program that is an integral part of students’ every day. As an Upper Dauphin alumni, I believe it is important to involve the community as collaborators for our school.  Please strongly consider attending and participating in our back to school night, parent teacher conferences, PTO, and Discovery parent day.

Student Drop Off and Pick Up Information

Students being dropped off by a parent at the Middle School in the morning should NOT be dropped off before 7:00 am.  The student drop off is located in the main parking lot.  Please do not come into the bus circle to drop off students.

Students being picked up by a parent at the Middle School at the end of the day should bring in a note from their parent(s).  Students can pick up a car pass in the Middle School office at the end of the day and turn it in to a teacher that is on bus duty in the lobby.  The teacher will then allow the student to exit the building to the parent pick up location in the main parking lot.  Please do not come into the bus circle to pick up students.

Activity Bus Information

Students needing to ride on the Activity Bus must sign up on the pink sign up sheet that is posted on the Middle School Office window by 12:30 pm.  When signing up, students should mark HS behind their name if they need a ride home on the Activity Bus after an activity at the High School.  Students not marking HS behind their name will be scheduled to ride home from the Middle School.  Students will be dropped off by the activity bus at their PM bus stop location.
