BMS Resources

Bolivar R-1 Schools Mission:

With commitment, confidence and care for all, we will partner with students, families and the community to foster a safe learning environment that develops future-ready leaders and life-long learners.

BMS Mission:

“Every child succeeds, whatever it takes, no excuses!”

The entire Bolivar Middle School community shares a collective responsibility to ensure that every student achieves academic and emotional fulfillment in a nurturing atmosphere of high expectations and personal support.

Our Vision:

Bolivar Middle School, a child-centered and standards-driven community, is responsible for offering a vast array of programs, policies, and practices that are tailored to maximize the learning potential of every student. The entire Bolivar Middle School community is united in developing the whole child. This approach stems from a shared philosophy that promotes intellectual rigor, high academic achievement, and quality performance. At Bolivar Middle School, all students will be challenged to develop their unique talents in a nurturing atmosphere of high expectations and personal support.

In a safe, well-disciplined, and motivating environment, students will be given numerous opportunities to participate, learn, and succeed. A developmentally responsive and fully integrated curricula will ensure that every student acquires the necessary knowledge, skills, self-confidence, and character necessary for productive citizenship in an ever-changing and complex global society.

As independent, lifelong learners, all Bolivar Middle School students will be able to think critically, solve problems, communicate effectively, cooperate with others, make wise decisions, and experience personal fulfillment. To that end, a dynamic partnership between the home, school, and community will be forged to ensure the intellectual, emotional, social, and physical development of every student.
