Strickland was built in 1968 as the second middle school in Denton ISD and is known for its many traditions and legacies. The school prepares today’s learners to be tomorrow’s leaders through its strong academic programs and many extracurricular clubs, organizations and events.
Strickland students, family and staff believe in working together to develop a solid educational foundation. Students at Strickland can enroll in gifted and talented classes, career and technology courses, and even enroll in dual-language programs that build on English and Spanish language skills.

Strickland Middle School is always collecting Box Tops for Education. Please send them with your child to put in their reading teacher or EXPO teacher’s Box Top boxes in their rooms. We are having a contest each semester to see which team can bring the most. We were able to raise over $1000.00 in less than four months last year. We are hoping to double our money this year. We spent the money to purchase library books. The students were very excited. Mrs. Sofia’s classes won and got an ice cream party, but everyone has enjoyed the new books. It is a win, win situation. Start Clipping!!!!!
Strickland students saw the impact of kindness first-hand on Feb. 26, when they provided free meals to 35 people during lunch at the Chick-fil-A in Rayzor Ranch. The 16 students at the restaurant provided $10 meal cards to strangers at the restaurant as part of the school’s Rachel’s Challenge group.
