Kate Bond Middle School will become a premier school dedicated to a literature embedded learning environment where Socratic seminars and innovative teaching practices will be used. 

 

 

Through our rigorous and engaging academic program, Kate Bond Middle School will produce creative thinkers who can identify and solve complex and relevant problems, communicate well, understand passions, strengths, and challenges and be responsible citizens in a diverse world. 

Statement of Purpose

The purpose of Kate Bond Middle School is to provide a rigorous academic program designed to accelerate learning for all students.  Because effort, preparedness, and self-direction are characteristics exhibited by successful learners, each day our students are encouraged to challenge themselves academically.  At KBMS, we encourage parents to be actively involved in all aspects of the educational program, thereby working cooperatively, the school and home can provide a challenging program for all students.

 

 

  • Teachers will deliver deliberate, systematic teaching processes with checkpoints for student learning.
