Beaufort Middle School is an incredible Fine Arts Infused school that encourages students to creatively express their learning, emphasizes differentiated instruction that ignites their innate ability to learn and engages their interests to pursue meaningful challenges with the utmost of confidence.

Beaufort Middle is an excellent school! Wonderful teachers and wonderful administration! I will be very sad when my kids go to HS because they will not be at BMS.

Beaufort Middle School is an amazing part of our community! The students are proud of the education that they are receiving. I love the arts infused focus of the school. The community supports the school and works to improve it! If you're looking for a great school where your elementary student and middle school student are in close proximity to one another, this is your school!! It's great to see the administration at both schools focus on making a seamless transition for students going from elementary to middle school.

This is a great school! This year we have gone up for Palmetto's Finest award and are a top 3 fianlist, we havent gotten the results yet. The teachers are very friendly and the classes are small enough for individual learning too! They have lots of things to offer and great teachers/principals.

This is a terrible school the classes are waay too large the school is un-sanitary teachers are focused on multiple things, not focused on one single student resulting in bad grades, i would suggest spend some maney and make your childs life better!

I have two students at this school. They are starting an MYP (Midle Years Program), a Pre IB program. I think the jury is out on this move. We had two schools-within-schools. A Humanities School and an International School. I came here for this program, and I am sad to see it go. The Teachers are the same and that is a good thing. The Principal and Administrative Staff are also good. Overall this is a very good school. I hope the MYP change makes it better.

Possibly the best special education teachers at the middle school level in the area. The teaching is as good or better than what we experienced living in the suburbs of Atlanta (we are recent transplants).

Posted September 3, 2004

This is an excellent school where the teachers really care about each student. They have high expectations of their students. They are constantly working to improve their teaching methods to best suit the students they have in their classroooms. I would highly recommend this school!

In 2012-2013 South Carolina used the Palmetto Assessment of State Standards (PASS) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in Writing, English/Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science. The PASS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of South Carolina. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
