Welcome From the Principal

  Kimberly Bullock   Principal

Kimberly Bullock

Welcome to Neely’s Bend Elementary School in Madison, Tennessee.  I am honored to serve as the executive principal of this amazing school.  It is with excitement and dedication that I am partnering with parents, faculty and staff, and community partners to raise a standard of excellence in this local community.

At Neely’s Bend, our goal is to create an environment where courtesy and kindness prevail and where there is respect for differences in other people, customs and cultures.  We want our students to work hard individually and as a classroom community to achieve an environment where everyone feels value, believe, and know they can be successful.

It is our desire to naturally grow children academically, socially and emotionally through daily best practices, collaboration and consistency within our building.  With a dedicated staff of caring professionals, involved parents, and supportive community; our school can and will succeed in helping children become critical thinkers, active problem-solvers, inquisitive readers and proficient writers. 

I look forward to getting to know you this school year and many school years to come.

Remember you are loved!

School Description

Neely’s Bend Middle School offers many opportunities for students to learn, grow and prepare for high school. We offer two high-school credit courses plus the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP), a program that helps students learn how to evaluate information critically.

On a daily basis, our students are taught Literacy, Math, Science and Social Studies. As part of our rotating creative arts program, Creative Writing, Spanish, Choir, Computer, Art and Physical Education are also offered. Students can earn high-school credits for Algebra and Physical Science, and we offer the Encore program for gifted and talented students. Social services are also available for our students as well as before- and after-school tutoring. 

Our knowledgeable faculty and staff are dedicated to our students and parents. As we undergo the conversion process to a charter school, we are collaborating with our sister school, Neely’s Bend College Prep, to ensure a smooth transition.
