Welcome to the home page of Hugh B. Bain Middle School, home of the Knights! This web site was created to help visitors and members of the school community learn about our school and its programs.  Our dedicated and collegial staff and a rigorous standards-based academic program will provide your child the continued educational experience necessary for their transition through adolescence.


Our students are “teamed” whereby teachers share common preparation and planning time in order to meet the needs of their community of learners.  Parent conferences are scheduled during these common periods. Since middle school is a time of growth and exploration, Bain Middle School offers our students a full academic program that encompasses the five core content areas: Math, English, Reading or Foreign Language, Science, and Social Studies.  


Students meet with an Advisory teacher on a daily basis for character education lessons, extra academic support and organizational skill instruction the remainder of the school week.  We also have full time educators who teach our range of related arts courses such as band, orchestra, chorus, art, and computer technology education.  Students are encouraged to participate in our wide range of after school programs, some of which include Student Council, Bain+2, Project Respect, Intramural Sports and Steppez.


Parent support is critical to the growth of your children, and I encourage your participation in school concerts, athletic events, and Parent Teacher at Bain (PTB) meetings.   On the first day of school each student received a Student Agenda Book.  This agenda is used as a daily organizer and planner.  Additionally, all school policies, rules, resources, and Code of Conduct information is contained within. We encourage you to take a few minutes to review this important information with your child.


I look forward to working with all parents and students in making sure everyone has a successful school year!
