Principal's Message

It is my honor to assume the role of principal and become part of the JCMS family.  I can already tell JCMS is a wonderful place to engage with students, teachers, staff, and the community.

I come to you with 18 years of experience as an educator. Most of my career has been at the middle school level, however, most recently I have served as the physical science teacher at Jackson County High School.

I have begun to familiarize myself with the unique needs of our school. I believe wholeheartedly that every student deserves a quality education and that only happens when the school and the community work together for the best interests of our children. With that in mind, I will be calling on all of our faculty, staff, and parents to work as a singular unit to best serve our children.

I believe the potential of our students and our school is limitless.  I believe JCMS is a place where students feel safe and receive the high-quality education they deserve.  Please reach out to me with any thoughts or concerns.  

Best Regards,

Gary Tinsley
