Vision Statement

Bettendorf Middle School staff work in partnership with the community and the family to develop well-rounded students. We strive to produce students who leave middle school prepared to meet the rigors of the high school curriculum and to become life-long problem solvers and contributing members of the community.

We offer a curriculum that is relevant and challenging. Students and teachers are engaged in active learning, including exploratory activities and real life applications. Multiple learning and teaching approaches respond to student diversity. Through alternative programming and differentiation, Bettendorf Middle staff work to meet the needs of all students: high and low achieving, special education, and at-risk. Technology is used daily as an instructional tool, an educational resource, and a necessary life-long skill.

We strive to provide class sizes that promote optimal learning. We have high expectations for every member of our learning community. Bettendorf Middle School educators’ value working with young adolescents and are prepared to do so. Teachers are prepared and certified to teach in their subject areas. Students demonstrate learning in a variety of ways and at a pace that ensures future success.

We provide an on-going effort to create an inviting, supportive, and safe environment for students and staff. Our school climate fosters student health, wellness, and self-esteem. Comprehensive guidance and support services promote relationship building and positive asset development.
