Welcome to Jefferson County Traditional Middle School (JCTMS). On behalf of all JCTMS faculty and staff members, I look forward to working with our new and returning students as we embark on an exciting school year! Middle school is an exciting time of growth and development for the students as well as their parents. Students are encouraged to get involved in at least one of our many extracurricular activities and parents will benefit from being involved in multiple areas where volunteers are needed.

JCTMS has a rich history and a strong tradition of being one of the top-performing middle schools in the state. Our staff works hard each day to build on this achievement and obtain new levels of success. We will strive for strong collaboration between parents and staff to foster an atmosphere that promotes the highest academic expectations within a structured environment that promotes citizenship, self-discipline, patriotism, and respect for all.

We are located in the heart of the Highlands neighborhood and are proud of our diverse student body, which is composed of more than 900 students in grades six through eight. As part of the Traditional Magnet Program of Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS), we are dedicated to the pursuit and mastery of excellence. I invite you to join us as we work each day to develop our students into successful future leaders!
