Welcome to Bullen Middle School!

This is another exciting year for us! We get to welcome another group of students to our Bobcat community. Each year we have the opportunity to guide students from 6th to 8th grade in their journey through the teenage years toward college and careers.

The mission of John Bullen Middle School, a collaborative learning community which values diversity, is to empower each student to realize his or her unique potential as a contributing member of society, through a safe environment that develops belonging and academic success. This is our promise.

We continue to keep our commitment to the students strong. This strength is emphasized by our focus on two aspects of our school community: achieving learning excellence through literacy and numeracy and positive behavior management.

Bullen is committed to building students into learners for not just this year, but for their entire lives. This means a focus in all classes are on learning targets and essential skills. Students will be having daily learning targets from their classes so that they can focus their learning on the skills they need for life. We believe this preparation for college and career begins with us.

Bullen is also committed to building students into positive and contributing citizens. To encourage this positive lifestyle, Bullen has created a Positive Behavioral Intervention Systems (PBIS) known as Bobcat Pride. PBIS is a nationally recognized, research-based process for creating more effective schools. PBIS is not a program or curriculum to buy. Rather, it is a team-based approach for systemic problem solving, planning, and evaluation that takes 3-5 years to implement completely. It’s a way to create a positive and productive learning environment where teachers can teach and students can learn. The three core values of our Bobcat Pride are Responsibility, Respect, and Safety. For more information, you may contact us at Bullen or go to www.wisconsinpbisnetwork.org.

At Bullen, we believe in the slogan that "Together We Are at our Best.” This is something that we must each strive for and actively create each day... together.
