Bair Middle School offers great opportunities for students to learn beyond any boundaries and encourages them to think outside the box. Bair and its facility and staff go above and beyond to support and assist parents and students to obtain what it takes to achieve a higher level of education. Your students would be able to have opportunities they may not get at any other middle school because they really care, they listen to suggestion and really have the students interest as top priority! I highly recommend Bair to be considered when making a decision on the here your children will attend middle school. Signed, a very satisfied parent!

I am in full support of the suggested Montessori magnet for Bair Middle school. I believe another education option for the students is a benefit for all students, current or newly able to attend our great school thanks to the addition. A magnet program would also help our community and surrounding businesses. I can't attend the meeting because of other commitments, but I am happy that my voice will be heard through this website.
