Principal's Message



It is my pleasure to welcome you to our new website!

We at Bancroft are excited to share all the wonderful programs and opportunities we have in store for your child.  Whether you are new to our Bancroft family or are returning, we are confident we can provide your child with a rich, rigorous, and nurturing environment in which your child can learn and grow. We welcome the support from our Bancroft families and encourage you to visit our classrooms.

Our Gifted /High Ability STE[+a]M Magnet center offers an integrated curriculum linked through science and engineering. We use Project Lead the Way curriculum to engage students in real-world experiences, and help our students understand the design process.

The Performing Arts Magnet center provides young people the opportunity to learn the basics of stage, film, and TV performances and crafts. Students are encouraged to explore the spectrum of performing arts: dance, drama, music and film, and are given the opportunity to meet with professional entertainers and observe quality performances.

The Resident school allows students to explore their general interests and prepares them for high school. Students have access to a variety of exploratory academic and performance art electives. They share a common core of teachers that work collaboratively to meet their academic, social and emotional needs.

As an Authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) World School - Middle Years Program (MYP) we provide our students a framework of learning that encourages them to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers. The MYP emphasizes intellectual challenge, encouraging students to make connections between their studies in traditional subjects and to the real world. It fosters the development of skills for communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement, qualities that are essential for life in the 21st century. Implementing the MYP affords us the opportunity to offer students an internationally recognized, globally-focused, academically rigorous program.  

Every teacher and staff member is dedicated to the academic achievement and the social-emotional and physical health of all our students. And we look forward to working together as a team to help your child reach his or her full potential, ready for whatever the future has in store for them!  

Thank you for making Bancroft Middle School a part of your family!
