Bluffton Middle School was built in 2010 as a state-of-the-art facility. The school opened in August 2010 with over 800 6th and 7th grade students from the four existing elementary schools in the Bluffton cluster: Okatie, M.C. Riley, Red Cedar, and Bluffton Elementary, in addition to the rising 7th grade students from HE McCracken Middle School. In August 2011, students from Prichardville Elementary joined the rising 6th grade students attending BLMS. Our school enjoys a dynamic mix of students all coming together for the first time from the 5 feeder elementary schools.
