Middle Schools in Bismarck Public Schools organize relationships for learning to create a climate of intellectual development and a caring community of shared educational purpose. All three middle schools in the Bismarck district are divided into smaller learning communities, with teams of teachers and students as the underlying organizational structure. To ensure strong teams, our middle schools pay attention to the nature and quality of interactions among teachers and student team members. Our middle schools' teams continually concentrate their efforts on achieving high standards for both teaching and learning skills. Our middle schools also attend to critical elements which affect the success of our teams. These critical elements include the size of the teams, the composition of each team, a team time for all team members to meet daily, and continuity in all aspects of the teaching and learning process.
