• Welcome to Jordan Middle School!  We currently serve over 650 students in our grades 5-8 middle school.  Our highly trained and dedicated staff is committed to meeting the varied academic, social and emotional needs of our students.  Thank you for the pleasure of working with your family as the staff and I consider it a honor to serve you and your family during these transitional years of middle school.

    JMS offers rigorous standards-based curriculum, infused with 21st century skills where students learn the skills needed to not only contribute but lead in generations to come. Instructional staff plan and deliver curriculum resulting in learning opportunities where students will critically and creatively problem solve while developing strong collaboration and communication skills.  Through the use of technology (PLANIT JORDAN - our 1:1 Chromebook device initiative),  along with the middle school design, students are prepared to not only contribute, but lead in the 21st century.  

    At JMS, we pride ourselves on working as a team.  We continually plan and work together to develop and improve the school culture, academic programming, and opportunities for all our students.  As a Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS) school, we focus on J-Town PRIDE by being respectful, responsible, and safe.  We offer strong elective options for students in and out of the instructional day.  There are numerous ways for students to be involved at school including athletics, choir, band, WEB, student council, technology, before and after school programs and the list goes on!  We are very committed to the growth of each and every student at our school.
