Welcome to Bates Middle School
A TransformSC STEAM/PBL School
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! We look forward to another successful year partnering with the staff and community to ensure our students receive an unparalleled educational experience.
Bates strives to provide a program that not only supports our students academically, but socially and emotionally. We are proud to offer a challenging college and career ready educational program, an award winning visual and performing arts program, an ever-growing sports program, and a host of club opportunities that offer something for everyone. We engage all of our students through Project Based Learning and STEAM experiences.
Our staff recognizes the role they play in helping your children reach their full potential, and they do not take the responsibility lightly. We truly believe all students can be successful, and this belief drives the work they do on a daily basis. Parent involvement too is vital to your children’s success, and we ask that you continue to play an active role in their education. Please consider being an active member of our PTSA. We need “all hands on deck”!
I am honored to lead such an outstanding school community and eagerly anticipate a rewarding and successful year. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions, concerns, or input at any time.
