Our Anti-Bullying Rules
  • We will not bully others.
  • We will try to help students who are bullied.
  • We will try to include students who are left out.
  • If we know that somebody is being bullied, we will tell an adult at school and an adult at home.



Designed to support our Failure Is Not An Option philosophy, REACH time is structured to help ensure success for all students. There is no one definition of success that fits all students and this block allows us the flexibility to provide support and reinforcement to those that need it, while offering enrichment activities to others.
A feature of our schedule once again this year is REACH (Reteaching, Enrichment, Activity CHoice) once per 5-day cycle.
Students that are eligible (no missing work, MCAS Proficiency, grades meet expectations--ours and theirs!) can participate in activity choice during REACH, which offers enrichment in a number of academic, cultural, and social arenas. Check out our current REACH offerings.

Our Philosophy
At Higgins Middle School we believe that all children can succeed. We also realize that students learn in a multitude of ways at vastly different rates. Simply put: we will not give up on students!
Part of this philosophy includes ensuring that students view failure and improvement as part of the natural learning process and that hard work and dedication pays off. We work with our students to rise to the challenge of our high expectations, to learn continuously, and to never give up.
We encourage and--in some cases--require our students to correct and improve upon their work by entering into a contract with teachers, with the ultimate goal being mastery of the subject area standards.

The Boys & Girls Club Peabody Unit is asking for your support of the after school program at the Higgins Middle School.  The cost to be a member is $10  for the entire school year and includes all programming!  Therefore, we depend on donors who want to see their "return on investment" at a local non-profit. All donations from Peabody residents are used exclusively for the Peabody unit.

The Club is open to all students at the Higgins.  Currently,  we have over 50 youth registered and our daily attendance is rising.  Power Hour, homework help, is the cornerstone of Club programming.  It is vital that our members do well in school and we are prepared to assist them in that goal.  Individual homework help is given by Salem State student volunteers and Club staff.  Since our staff consists in part of Higgins Middle School teachers, there are excellent connections within the school to help our students.  Other activities include cooking, arts & crafts and gym time, as well as field trips and guest speakers.  In addition, two additional computers have been added to our Club area and we will offer a program that teaches Microsoft Office skills in a manner that is fun and effective.

Please consider the Peabody Unit of the Boys & Girls Club when planning your charitable donations.

Please make checked payable to:  Boys & Girls Club.  Please mail to: Mr. Fred Bruno, Higgins Middle School, 1 King St. Ext., Peabody, MA 01960
