• Bismarck Public Schools organize relationships for learning to create a climate of intellectual development & 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 & students as the underlying organizational structure.

    To ensure strong teams, our middle school pays attention to the nature & quality of interactions among teachers & student team members. Our teams continually concentrate their efforts on achieving high standards for both teaching & learning skills.

    We 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, & continuity in all aspects of the teaching & learning process.
