About Our School

  • Mission Statement
    The students of Jackson Middle School will become life-long learners, have strong character, and become productive citizens while achieving academic success.

    Jackson Middle School is a 6th – 8th grade campus with a diverse student population of close to 1,000 students. JMS leads the way in academics, athletics, and fine arts with robust school spirit and traditions. The academic curriculum offers all courses required by the State of Texas for the mastery of standards for each grade level.
    Jackson’s program of choice is the Environmental Systems program. The program is designed to create environmentally knowledgeable citizens capable of understanding the complex environmental issues facing today's world and empowering them to effect change in their communities. The program is designed around a cohort model where the same group of students have their traditional science class and their environmental science class scheduled consecutively. Additionally, students in 8th Grade take a high school level course, Environmental Systems, with the potential to earn high school science credit. The courses are hands on and based in current environmental problems and concerns facing our communities.
