Welcome to The Blue Mountain Middle School

It is our pleasure to welcome you to Blue Mountain Middle School. Our school curriculum, instruction, activities, and social events are all designed for the middle school level.
Our school is designed to offer the kind of program which will benefit the greatest number of students. It is through the interest and help of the school community that we are able to move forward in this goal. We encourage your continued support in assisting us in building a better school.

The objective of this Web Page is to help students and parents of the Blue Mountain Middle School. It is hoped that this information may be of some assistance in answering questions any parents or students may have.

If any member of our staff may render assistance concerning our program, we will gladly be of service to you. All parents are encouraged to participate in the many phases of school activities, offered at Blue Mountain Middle School. It is through parent involvement that you will gain a better knowledge of the school and its programs.

We encourage each parent and student to join the Blue Mountain Middle School Parent Teacher Organization PTO. This is an excellent opportunity for the parents, teachers, and students to work together and become more involved with their school.
