Minor Middle School was established in 1971 as Bottenfield Junior High
School serving grades 7-9. In 2001, in changing to a middle school
model, the building was expanded and we began serving grades 6-8 as
Bottenfield Middle School. Now, in 2016, we begin a new, exciting
chapter as Minor Middle School.
Minor Middle School is the only school in the Jefferson County School
District with a Health Sciences Program. We are also one of only two
Project Lead the Way middle schools in the district that offer a mechanical and
software engineering program through Robotics. Our award-winning band
program and our outstanding athletics offerings contribute to a
well-rounded education for our students.
Minor Middle School is committed to preparing self-disciplined and
independent lifelong learners by collaboratively working with students,
parents, and the community.
It is our mission to provide effective teaching and learning by
implementing best practices through meaningful, rigorous learning
experiences for all students with diverse needs.
