Dear Parents:
We would like to welcome you to our Bantam Family! It is our primary goal at Bates Middle School to offer our students an education in a positive and safe environment that meets both their academic and social needs. We want to provide our students with an education that will enable them to be productive, competent and life-long learners who will be able to compete in a global society.  One of the best ways to foster a relationship with your child’s teacher is to schedule a conference via phone call or in person.  In an effort to improve home and school communication, we are also available through email.  Collaboratively, we can help your child have a successful middle school experience. 

Dr. Ayesha Hunter, Principal, Bates Middle School
