MISSION: To lead an educational partnership with the Community, maintaining an environment that challenges all students to reach their potential as lifelong learners and responsible members of society.



Welcome to another wonderful year at Independence Middle School!  We look forward to working with you and giving the children an unforgettable year. 

Please consider becoming a member, without volunteers none of this is possible:

The Bethel Park School District encourages the involvement of parents and guardians in our schools. Pennsylvania State Law requires that EVERY volunteer who has direct contact with students must have the necessary clearances on file with the school district. The required clearances are the Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance (Act 151), Pennsylvania State Police Criminal Record Check (Act 34) and the FBI Federal Criminal History Record (Act 114).  PA Clearances are free to volunteers, and the FBI Clearance is $22.60. Volunteers who have resided in Pennsylvania for ALL of the past 10 years and have never been convicted of a Disqualifying Offense can sign a waiver that would eliminate the need for the FBI Clearance.
