Our vision is that Kate Bond Middle School will become a premier school dedicated to a literature embedded learning environment where Socratic seminars and innovative teaching practices will be used.

 

Our Mission

The purpose of Kate Bond Middle School is to provide a rigorous academic program designed to accelerate learning for all students. Because effort, preparedness, and self-direction are characteristics exhibited by successful learners, each day our students are encouraged to challenge themselves academically.
