An Open Letter to Parents, Guardians, and the Junction City Middle School Community;

The students at JCMS come from right here in Kansas, as well as all over the world because many represent military families stationed at Fort Riley.  Nine hundred 6th -8th grade Wildcats attend JCMS, and are split into 10 core teams by grade level.  JCMS has 1:1 technology and each student is issued a tablet to use in class and at home as needed.  Teachers at JCMS teach using KCCRS in Math, Language Arts and Social Studies, and NGSS standards in Science.  Each grade level has a Counselor and an Assistant Principal which rotate through the grades with the classes, thus promoting family and school relationships. Junction City Middle School students have access to top notch athletic  and fine arts curriculum  and facilities, and Career Exploration, Technology, FACS, and  STEM labs.  We offer a variety of extra services for students, including extra support in reading and math as needed, as well as PM Academy which is an after school academic support program.   AVID is a part of our school culture, with all teachers using AVID best practices of Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization and Reading in their classes.

Junction City Middle School students take part in our Renaissance Program which promotes Academic, Attendance, and Behavior Success.  Students who qualify can earn honors such as attending assemblies, ball games and activities, as well as Night of the Stars Awards Assembly and a trip to Worlds of Fun in the Spring.  We have student clubs such as KAYS, NJHS, SADD, and StuCo.
