BCMS Named a "Distinguished" School Way to Go!

Barren County Middle School was recently named a Distinguished/Progressing/Focus school by the Kentucky Department of Education.  BCMS increased their scores from a 59.2 to 71.1 “Distinguished” rating and earned a spot in the top one-third of middle schools across the state.

We are so proud of our students for all of their hard work.  We are incredibly grateful for a staff that works tirelessly to make this middle school experience an extraordinary one.

This achievement and many others would not be possible without the support and dedication of everyone who makes up the BCMS family. 

To our students, staff members, district staff, parents and community members, we say “Thank you.”  We are truly blessed.
