"Curve balls a coach can't explain. Chemistry not found in a lab. That's why there are School Counselors."
Welcome to the Counseling Center website. Bethel Middle School consists of 6th, 7th and 8th graders. Bethel Middle School is filled wonderful staff and students. We strive to create a welcoming, friendly learning environment with rigorous academics. Bethel Middle School implements a program called Making Middle Grades work in an effort to continue to improve our school. We are generally available from 7:00 to 2:30. Due to our busy schedule, it is highly recommended you call ahead for an appointment to ensure you will be seen. We are often in classrooms, meetings or out on assigned duties. You can contact the Counseling Secretary/Registrar at 683-7284 for an appointment. You may fax information to our building fax number at 683-7298.
We have six subject periods daily plus an advisory period every day. All students take the required core subject classes at each grade level. There are three elective choices including, band, choir or a set exploratory elective rotation at each grade level for one period. Each student will also take a set techonology rotation of classes as part of the curriculum. Any student not meeting standard may be required to lose one or both elective rotations to take a helping class in the areas of math or reading. Our goal is to have all students meet academic standards.
WEB - BMS has implemented a Student Program called WEB (Where Everyone Belongs) that is dedicated to transitioning 6th graders and welcoming them to our school. You can find our more information about this program under links.
