Welcome to Bates Middle School
An International Baccalaureate MYP World STEAM School
Welcome back to school to both new and returning students and their families! Together, with our competent and caring staff and you as involved parents and guardians, we can make a successful team! We will strive to foster a learning environment where your child can thrive academically and achieve his or her personal goals. In support of this, we are proud to announce our transitioning to a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) Project Based Learning School.
I encourage you to communicate with us throughout the year via face-to-face conferences, or by phone or email. Sign up for Parent Portal to be able to view your child’s grades and attendance. Your child’s teachers and I look forward to meeting you and working together to make 2016-17 a memorable school year!
