Bert Wright, Principal
Greetings to all and welcome to the Bluffs Middle School (BMS) website! We hope that you will find our site easy to navigate and full of useful information. Our building was first opened to students in the fall of 1923 as Scottsbluff High School. As the building began to expand, it housed both high school and junior high students until 1960 when the current Scottsbluff High School was built. BMS has been a junior high and middle school ever since, and in the fall of 2010, students moved into a completely renovated and state of the art academic facility. A successful bond referendum and supportive community made this proud learning environment possible. The renovation included rearranging the classroom layout to fit the middle school concept, updating the electrical wiring and technology infrastructure, relocating the office to the original central entrance, adding elevators for easy handicap accessibility, and installing air conditioning while updating the heating and ventilation system. Our renovated school features a multi-purpose room that can serve as a commons area for students, a cafeteria during lunch time, and as an auditorium for small performances and school assemblies. A spacious, versatile fitness room overlooks the gymnasium, which provides seating for 750 spectators.
Our commitment at Bluffs Middle School is to provide a safe, positive, and intellectual learning environment that will empower students to become creative problem solvers, critical thinkers, and inspired learners prepared for high school, college, and life in the twenty-first century . Read More
