Come SOAR with us at BMSD !

Blenheim Middle School of Discovery is kicking off the 2020-21 school year with a new vision and motto that's sure to inspire, encourage, and motivate students, parents, and the community. 


"At Blenheim Middle School of Discovery, we are changing the narrative and culture of the school. Our mascot is the  perfect representation of the direction we are taking", says Principal Dr. Vance. "When you think of the eagle, you think of the most elite bird. When an eagle is up against a storm, it goes against the current, and it soars above all, and that is how we think of our students". This thought process has helped develop the school's new motto: Come SOAR With Us, and new vision statement:
Every student, Excelling Everyday or E3. 


In addition to having a new motto and vision, BMSD has adopted a new emblem, The Crest, which reminds you of a Shield. Parents and visitors can find the emblem posted around the school. "Our focus is academic excellence," says Dr. Vance. "The crest represents our defense, and it protects us from whatever might try to intervene our quest to excellence".  Each quadrant on the crest represents our commitment to academic excellence and integration of the arts.   The lamp represents knowledge. The comedy and tragedy mask represents theater.  The palette and music symbols represents the arts.  Through the arts, students can gain a sense of creativity, self-respect and become more career-savvy. In addition, the arts teach critical 21st century life skills-collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical-thinking.  The arts also help students acquire the skills needed for college, careers, and citizenship. All of the components in the crest includes the skills listed on the Profile of a South Carolina Graduate.


The faculty and staff at Blenheim Middle School of Discovery is committed to providing a quality education and creating lifelong learners. Despite the circumstances, the BMSD family stands firm on their core values, commitment, respect, building relationships and integrity! Come SOAR With Us!
