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.

School News
School Council:  BIS is forming its school council for the year.  We are looking for a sixth grade parent and a seventh grade parent to join the team, which includes the principal, two staff members, two parents and a community representative.  The council meets once a month to discuss issues of the school.  If you are interested in joining the BIS School Council please send me an e-mail  at and share a little about your connection to the school.  All interested parents' names and provided connections will be used to create a ballot that will be available to all parents to fill out at the upcoming open houses. 
Open Houses: 
The 6th grade open house night is Thursday, October 2 from 6:30 to 8:00. 
The 7th grade open house night is Thursday, October 9 from 6:30 to 8:00.
Students will bring home from school an itinerary for the evening the day of the open house.   

Ice Bucket Challenge:  On Wednesday, September 17, Twenty-Nine members of the BIS staff participated in the Ice Bucket Challenge during Connect 2 Respect period.  Donning outfits that ranged from a prom dress to full scuba gear, staff members had buckets of ice water dumped on them by students who won the honor by donating to the ALS fund.  The event was attended by the entire staff and student body, who participated through their cheers and lively countdowns.  Be on the look out for photos and video that will be coming soon to the website.
