Back to School Greetings,
It is with great enthusiasm that the staff and faculty of BIS welcome you to the new school year. The 2013-14 school year marks the fifth year of our community as “Barnstable Intermediate School”. I am proud of our students and our staff commitment and effective effort to create a school climate that emphasizes kindness and academic achievement.
This year we will continue to enhance our school themes of “Effective Effort” and “Climate of Kindness”, as we develop and engage students in challenging curriculum using mobile learning. I look forward to working with our students and staff to make this a successful year of learning for all at BIS.

Our Mission

 The Barnstable Intermediate School takes pride in its role as an important bridge for students as they make the transition from elementary education to secondary education on their way to becoming more self-reliant, disciplined, and caring young adults.  Students and staff are engaged in challenging, differentiated instruction applying effective effort strategies to reach their maximum individual potential.  Students contribute to a positive school climate that promotes a sense of belonging and connection to their school and community.   Our success is measured by gains in individual student growth and academic achievement.
