School Profile
Nevin Platt Middle School is endowed with a rich history of commitment to academic rigor and meeting the unique needs of preadolescent children. Platt’s certified staff is dedicated to providing for students’ intellectual, physical and emotional needs and to assuring that students achieve academically at the highest levels possible.

Platt offers a conventional middle school program with teams of teachers working together in collaboration to support students. Teachers teach in academic-interdisciplinary teams, and students access a full-course of elective classes.

For students who thrive in a learning environment that is more "hands-on," Platt offers an alternative-middle school program called CHOICE. The CHOICE program shares the Platt facility, administration, elective classes and after school activities, including athletics.

The CHOICE program, created by parents and educators in 1987 as BVSD’s first alternative to conventional neighborhood middle school programming, stresses experiential learning linked to academic rigor. The program features multi-age grouping, integrated subjects and alternative assessment. Students must apply for this three-year program through open enrollment.

 

 

 School Mission and Vision

 


Mission -- The mission of Nevin Platt Middle School is to help each student learn the skills, knowledge, and attitudes necessary to assume a responsible position in our society. Considering the significant changes middle level students experience as well as the developmental nature of their education and their surroundings, education for all students must be individualized and personalized. A proper balance between academic and personal/social development will be maintained as students move through this period of dramatic transition. Students need to learn that they are valuable to themselves as well as others, and, therefore, they must take responsibility to achieve in accordance with their abilities. The staff and community of the school will commit their energy, skills, and resources to helping students achieve these goals. Together we will provide an environment of support, encouragement, and expectancy as we direct the academic and social development of our students.

Vision -- “Nurturing Students supporting the quest for excellence.”
