Principal's Message

Bird Middle School, one of two middle schools in the town of Walpole, has a population of 517 students in grades 6 – 8 with sixty five faculty members who dedicate their time and efforts to improve student achievement and success. We have several Exploratory subjects in art, music, physical education, technology, and health for a complete schedule. There are many activities during the year which encourage students to use their talents. These include the spring musical, the variety show, student council, select chorus, jazz ensemble, and yearbook.

The keynote at Bird Middle School is participation and respect at all times. This school is what you make of it. The middle school years are a time of academic, social, and emotional growth for all students. These years are some of the most exciting and memorable years of life, and we encourage students to participate in all of the opportunities that are offered at Bird. The staff works hard to build upon the characteristics and needs of each student to optimize each student’s potential for achievement.

We want students to bring to Bird their spirit, their thoughts, their heart and they should enjoy a positive middle school experience. We want all students to be successful, and success is a team effort that consists of students, parents, teachers, staff, and administration.  The process of education can only be achieved with the support and encouragement from everyone involved.  Creating an atmosphere, which strives for mutual trust and respect, will enable students to succeed both in school and become productive members in our community.
