Belleville Middle School (BMS) is made up of approximately 150 7th and 8th grade students. Our dedicated and caring staff truly connect with students to engage them academically and to promote positive social interactions with their peers. The staff works cooperatively to design and implement cross-curricular units of study like the Model School Project. They also place an emphasis on relevant, hands-on learning, including the Middle School Market, Giving Garden, political convention, and STEM 3D printing. In addition, they are leaders in technology integration and personalized learning with our move to a 1:1 technology initiative this school year. Every 7th and 8th grader has access to their own Chromebook throughout the school day, and the staff uses Hapara and Google Classroom to share materials, offer feedback, provide for collaboration, as well as to monitor student use.
Because middle school can be a time for social and emotional development for students, our staff creates numerous team-building experiences to encourage students to be supportive of one another. These opportunities include field trips and bonding exercises at a low-ropes course and Civil War encampment. We place a priority on parent communication. We also offer Sprigeo - an online, anonymous website for students to report bullying and harassment concerns. The administrative and counseling staff addresses each Sprigeo report.
BMS shares facilities and staff with Belleville High School, so students have access to a wide-range of academic opportunities. Outside of the core academic areas, students are exposed to German, Spanish, General Music, Computers/Leadership, Art, Music, Agriculture, Health, and Physical Education in a rotation. Other extracurricular offerings include:
- Sports: Basketball, Cross Country, Track & Field, Volleyball, and Wrestling
- Clubs: Anime, Forensics, Future Business Leaders of America, Math Team, and Student Council
- Music: Band and Choir
- Spirit Days, Holiday Dances, and PBIS incentives
Welcome to Belleville where we “Discover, Engage, and Achieve.” We are one of Madison’s best suburbs and provide a safe learning environment for our students. It’s always a great day to be a Wildcat!
E-mail from parent about our Middle School Staff (Regarding the annual Turkey Drop)
“Your teachers/staff are amazing, and I feel very fortunate to have them in our school district! Not many people would take the extra time out of their schedules, especially on a Friday evening, to do this. They did so just for the sake of wanting to help our community and those in need. It blows me away every year that they do this...and what a great thing to get the students involved like they did- teaching them empathy, compassion, and how to give back :) You should be very proud of them all!!
