Ernest A. Becker Middle School received a 5-Star rating from the Nevada Department of Education. As a designated Title I school, with 60 percent of students low-income, we offer an early bird Honors Academy at every grade level for advanced students (6th, science; 7th, math; 8th, writing).
We incorporated social and emotional learning into our curriculum for the past three years. Mini lessons are taught bimonthly that focus on skills to help pre-teens and teens deal with the middle school years.
Becker MS has one of the strongest performing arts programs in the district offering band, choir, dance, guitar and orchestra for our students.
Becker MS offers extra assistance for students who struggle through pull-out intervention, study skills and fundamentals courses. 2016-17 test data showed that our students had a median growth percentile of 60 percent in math and 64 percent in English Language Arts (district average is 50 percent).
Becker MS celebrated its 25th anniversary this year with a huge 25-year birthday bash in October 2017!
