BIS Resources


With commitment, confidence and care for all, we will partner with students, families and the community to foster a safe learning environment that develops future-ready leaders and life-long learners.


We the staff, students, and families of Bolivar Intermediate School
resolve to create a school where . . .

all stakeholders work as a cohesive unit demonstrating mutual respect and responsibility to provide a positive learning environment meeting the emotional, physical, and educational needs of all students.

there is an emotional atmosphere of respect and trust within the safety of a clean, comfortable, and stimulating physical environment.

students develop their skills and knowledge to become successful, life-long learners, benefiting society by enriching the lives of others.

students are challenged to be critical thinkers and problem solvers effectively utilizing various forms of educational methodology including inquiry-based learning and technology to achieve academic success.

every student can excel and be recognized for his or her individual achievement to foster a sense of belonging and self-worth.

all students learn and practice responsible behavior, integrity and respect for others. All students believe success comes through effort and hard work.

I will Perform to the best of my ability.
I will Behave in a way that honors myself, my family, and my school.
I will Strive to be a learner and a friend.
I WILL perform, behave, and strive the LIBERATOR way!
