Bel Air Middle School

School Performance & Achievement  



Mission: Bel Air Middle School provides every student with a positive social, emotional, and academic experience in order for students to “Create their own Success Story.”

Vision: Bel Air Middle School is a safe and caring community that fosters rigorous academics, moral character, digital citizenship, and college and career readiness.

School-Wide Questioning Initiative:  All content areas will utilize higher-level questioning, discussion techniques, and student participation  to increase rigor in every classroom.

School Wellness:
  Students’ physical activity will increase throughout the school day as identified and measured by The Alliance for a Healthier Generation wellness assessment through several brief movement opportunities provided for all students outside of physical education instruction.  Students’ emotional wellness will increase by developing a brief mindfulness opportunity within the school day.

School Climate:  The PBIS Panther Pride Program will continue to promote healthy academic, emotional, and social behavioral outcomes for all students at BAMS focusing on positive, respectful, independent, determined, and engaged actions.  

Technology:  Through the implementation of 1:1 devices, students will engage in meaningful experiences within the classroom to deepen and communicate content knowledge, collaborate with others to complete a learning task, and participate in a global society where knowledge of technology and its usefulness are key.
