Beagle Middle School


At Beagle Middle School, our vision is to empower ALL students to succeed academically, socially, and emotionally.  Through collaboration with staff, families, and members of the community, we will continue to create a nurturing environment to provide equitable, engaging, and meaningful learning experiences that stimulate intellectual curiosity and are responsive and flexible to the needs of the whole child.  

As we all know, it takes a village to raise a child; therefore, we invite parents to support us here at Beagle.  If you are interested in joining our Parent Teacher Organization, then please contact us.  

Finally, we are here to support you and your family.  Meagan McMillan and Sadie Green, our main office secretaries and Jennie Hernandez in our Student Services office are here to assist you in an immediate fashion directing your requests to the appropriate staff, so please do not hesitate to contact us.

You may choose to wait until you receive additional information from your child's classroom teacher. It is important to remember that your child will not have a desk in which to keep supplies, so supplies will need to be kept to necessary items only. Thank you!
