BMS has much to offer its students. Our beautiful, technology rich, wireless facility has fully wireless access and spacious classrooms. The middle school teachers operate as a team to provide a variety of resources and supports for the unique needs of each individual student. Every grade level team of teachers meets daily to design instruction, support student success, and prepare weekly communication updates for parents on student on upcoming assignments, projects, and assessments. This team approach between teachers and parents helps parents guide children as they navigate through their middle school years. Our compassionate and student-centered staff encourages students to make the most of their educational opportunities.
We offer many extra-curricular activities for the students to become involved at BMS.
