Dag Hammarskjold Middle School, generally referred to as "Dag", is located on the east side of Wallingford, next to the Lyman Hall High School campus. The elementary feeder schools are: Moses Y. Beach, Pond Hill, Rock Hill, Stevens, and Yalesville. We are a comprehensive middle school that truly works to address the social, emotional, academic, and intellectual needs of our students. We welcome each student to be who they are as they navigate through early adolescence. Our dedicated faculty love what they do and they love sharing this passion with students.

Built in 1961, the school was named to honor the international peace advocate and former Secretary General of the United Nations.
