In addition to our core curriculum, students have access to a state-of-the-art Library Media Center, which fosters the love of learning early.

Meeting Every Child’s Needs
We believe that every child should be given every opportunity to find personal success.  With that in mind, we provide an array of special programs designed to meet the needs of every child.

  • High Ability Program – Starting in Kindergarten, high ability students are identified via a process that considers the entire child – not just a test score.
  • Title I Services – For those students at academic risk, we provide supplemental educational support and counseling to get students back on track.
  • Special Education– For students with special needs, our school works closely with the child and parent to understand the students’ challenges and identify an educational plan for that child. Our goal is to provide the necessary tools and format that will allow students to participate in a typical classroom setting.
  • English Language Learners– We are committed to ensuring that all of our students — including those who are not yet fluent in English — receive the best education possible.

Why I teach at Batesville Middle School

“All of the focus and effort are for the kids. The staff works as a team to do what is ultimately best for all students. The administration helps students and teachers reach their goals and are very supportive. Most importantly, the students work hard, are kind, and simply fun to teach.” – Aaron Garrett

“As educators we are always searching for new challenges. Middle School students push us to find the best practices in methodology to ensure their success. The administration and teachers continually support and encourage innovation. Outstanding leadership makes teaching most rewarding. We have an energetic, caring staff; so, for all of those reasons, I teach at BMS and thoroughly love it!” Kay Grimsley

“The biggest reason I teach at Batesville Middle School is the culture of high expectations. Staff and students are EXPECTED to perform at a high level. There isn’t just ONE class who performs well, rather EVERY class performs highly compared to most schools in the state.  I believe we’ve reached the point in this school and corporation that we no longer compare ourselves to how well we did with state standards.  I believe we now compare ourselves to a Batesville standard.” Eric Feller

“I have had the pleasure of working at Batesville Middle School for the past fifteen years.  Batesville Middle School is a great school to work at, not only because we have hard working students and committed parents, but also because of our dedicated BMS school administration and staff.  Everyone at Batesville Middle School, regardless of their position, has one goal–to help our students be the best they can be.” – Karen Salvitti
