Bammel Middle School
Bammel Middle School, built in 1971, was the second middle school built in the District. Named after the Bammel community whose namesake, Charley Bammel, moved his family to the area from Houston in 1915. The first facility was located at 1500 Southridge. In January 2004, the school relocated to a new building at 16711 Ella Blvd.
Here at Bammel Middle School we’re working hard to improve scholars’ academic achievement through maximized learning time, data-driven instruction, high-dosage tutoring for scholars who need it, and parent outreach — ensuring all parents are informed of their scholar’s progress throughout the year.
We call this having a culture of high expectations and it applies to all of our staff and students. Also, because we understand that literacy is the foundation for all learning, our teachers will incorporate literacy lessons in math, science and social studies classes.
Homework here at Bammel Middle School will consist of all scholars keeping a reading log to complete every night, math problems to solve using our problem-solving strategy, and science and social studies content to review.
All of these things — plus more — will drive the way we do things here at Bammel Middle School this school year.
