Bellingrath Philosophy


Pursue Excellence by Acting Respectfully, Working Responsibly, Being Resourceful, and Staying Safe

The purpose of the Bellingrath Middle School program is to promote the academic development and social growth of all Bellingrath students, Bellingrath Middle School strives to provide a school setting which takes in consideration the transition period from childhood to adolescence. Middle school students undergo enormous intellectual, physical, social, and emotional changes during this period.

The Bellingrath environment is designed to accommodate the special needs of the middle school student and to provide a stable and secure environment. Every effort is made to be certain that Bellingrath students are safe and have a positive and constructive environment where they can learn and grow. Bellingrath staff must coordinate and integrate educational resources to meet the individual as well as group needs.

The primary goal of Bellingrath staff members is to assist students in reaching their potential and achieve success in their academic and social pursuits.

Bellingrath Middle School is based upon a fundamental belief that student learning flourishes when the school staff and parents work together in a strong partnership. Student success is a goal shared by parents and the staff at Bellingrath. Parents are encouraged to be actively involved in their child’s educational program.

Schoolwide Behavior Support

Bellingrath Middle School is actively developing procedures and incentives to implement a Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support system (PBIS) at the school. This system places an emphasis on clear and consistent expectations, positive reinforcement, and follow- through by all staff to ensure success for all students. Three school-wide clearly defined behavioral expectations will be emphasized in all areas of school life: act respectfully, work responsibly and stay safe
