Chief Joseph Middle School
Bozeman, MT 59718
The middle schools serve as a bridge between the elementary and the high school experiences. While challenging students to master the fundamentals of academic education and to develop self-motivation and self-discipline, the middle schools recognize the unique needs of pre and early adolescents and strive to meet those needs by providing a balanced program of academics, exploratory opportunities, social interaction, and self-discovery during this transitional time. In order to accomplish this, the schools use interdisciplinary teams of approximately 125 students, and an advisory program where students meet with one teacher throughout the school year. Guidance counselors, teachers, and administrators are available throughout the year to assist in registration or other concerns about the school program.
