Staying connected and being able to communicate is an important part of middle school, so we strongly encourage you to use the BMS Website at http://britton.mhusd.org where you can find all school related information. In addition, the following tools can help you stay connected:

The middle school years are crucial in a student’s educational experience. Our mission at Britton Middle School is to make sure that your child gains the academic skills and work ethic that will ensure success in high school and beyond. This is the time for students to set their sights on their future and prepare the foundation to attain their goals. That being said, a few things:

  1. Elective
  2. English
  3. History
  4. Math
  5. PE
  6. Science  

If you are looking for another way to stay involved, please join our Home and School Club and/or School Site Council by looking for announcements of meetings or clicking on our link on the B.M.S. webpage.

Go Bobcats!
