Principal's Welcome to Blue Mountain Middle School

Welcome to Blue Mountain Middle School.  Our school population of approximately 650 students in grades 6-8 come to us from a variety of economic and cultural backgrounds.  Blue Mountain Middle School is a safe place where students have the opportunity to grow emotionally, mentally and academically with support from a caring faculty and staff.

We are very proud to offer a multitude of opportunities to our students.  I encourage all students to invest in their middle school experience both academically and through extra-curricular activities. In working closely with parents/guardians, we have consistently created a cooperative partnership that enhances our students middle school journey.

In an effort to continually improve Blue Mountain Middle School please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, suggestions or comments.  I look forward to working with you and your child during their middle school years.

James S. McGonigle, Principal

On a monthly basis, the sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students and staff have the opportunity to nominate students for our “Shout Out Board” for the television in the cafeteria.  Students that are nominated consistently display good citizenship and have a good attitude toward school (be punctual, complete homework assignments, participate in class and be courteous).  Recipients are awarded with a certificate and their name on the television in the cafeteria.  Additionally, these students will enter a monthly raffle to win an Eagle Star t-shirt and be eligible for additional prizes.  Please fill out the Google Form to nominate an Eagle Star today!
