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.
