Educating the whole child is the mission of Bigelow Middle School. Helping each child grow emotionally and socially, and become a healthy well-adjusted adolescent is as important as helping each child achieve strong academic progress. We strive to create a personalized environment in which students develop positive connections with trusted adults and with each other as part of a supportive community. We work together with students, parents and staff to promote the health and well-being of all students.
