Bull Run Middle School Designated 2014 School of Excellence
Our students have the distinction of attending a newly named PWCS School of Excellence. This is the 3rd consecutive year Bull Run Middle School has earned the coveted title. Bull Run Middle School has earned the distinction of School of Excellence 7 times since opening in the fall of 2002.

School of Excellence is the highest recognition awarded to schools by the PWCS School Board. It signifies high levels of performance on state accreditation, Annual Measurable Objectives, and in moving toward the goals of the Division’s Strategic Plan.

Congratulations to everyone who helped to earn this important indicator of student success.
