Hi my name is Ray Morris Barnes and I am the proud principle of Spring Forest Middle School. Our mission at Spring Forest is rooted in the districts core values, where we put every child first in our decision making process. We promote collective greatness through all of our stakeholders. We celebrate moments of collaborative spirit as we try to turn them into an every day occurrence. We explore and encourage limitless curiosity, as we are guided by our moral compass. We offer the most electives out of the comprehensive middle schools in SBISD. Our fine arts department offers UIL competition in orchestra, choir, band and theater arts, and they produce the most fantastic pieces of composed music and art that middle school students can produce. We offer all the UIL approved middle school athletics that we can offer, and we have a dedicated staff who work continuously, to improve at their craft, to help all of our students get better. We wish to promote a rigorous curriculum that pushes all students higher regardless of their current level of learning. This past year, we received the Golden Apple Award for having 100 percent of our staff join our fabulous PTA, and our PTA as a whole received the outstanding PTA award for secondary schools from the Spring Branch ISD counsel of PTA’s. I want to personally welcome any perspective student and family to come by and visit us, so we can show our Bobcat pride. We want you to come join the great things that are happening at Spring Forest today. You too can be a part of the greatness, and I hope to see you soon.
