Briscoe Middle School was constructed in 1923 as the new Beverly High School. In 1965, our facility became Briscoe Junior High School and eventually Briscoe Middle School, educating Beverly Public School students in grades 6 through 8. Our school building is rich in tradition and beautiful architecture, unmatched in recent construction. Particularly striking are the grand foyer and auditorium, modeled after Boston Symphony Hall! 

Our school-wide focus is to build a strong, challenging, academic program enhanced by interdisciplinary teaching while building a solid sense of self-responsibility and community awareness. Students are expected to demonstrate high levels of achievement while maximizing their many strengths and talents.
