When students and teachers possess the belief that intelligence and skills can be developed, they are exhibiting a "Growth Mindset."   We improve, learn, and achieve excellence through outlook, hard work and effort.  Challenges are stepping-stones to improvement not roadblocks to avoid.  Approaching work with this mindset encourages our school community to focus on continuous improvement regardless of where we begin on the learning spectrum.  At BMS it is not about how smart we are.  It is about the attitude we bring to learning and how hard we work. Growth Mindset is the lens through which we also teach Habits of a Scholar, critical 21st century character skills every student needs to master.
