Principal's Message

Dear JCMS Community,

It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter to you as the Principal of Jackson County Middle School. I continue to be excited and honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with amazing students who have big dreams for their future.

At JCMS we believe that it is important for our students to be connected to school through positive relationships and a strong sense of community.  I believe that every student can learn and be successful if provided the right support and opportunities.  Our teachers and staff are committed to providing all students with an appropriate and challenging educational experience in a respectful environment that fosters learning and growth.

Attendance plays a critical role in every student’s success in school.  As a parent or guardian it is essential for you to maintain an attitude that “Every Day Counts” for students to be in school and ready to learn each day.  At JCMS, we will assist in helping parents and families understand the importance of instructional time and school attendance.  Additionally at JCMS, we recognize that family and community support are integral to our success. Parents/Guardians play an undeniably important role in a student's success and I invite you to collaborate with us in your students' education.

When we take the time to strategically plan, forge positive relationships, celebrate our achievements, and continue to build on our successful foundation, we can foster a learning environment where the entire JCMS community thrives.

Jackson County Middle School strives to be a place where exceptional teaching and learning is the norm.

Have a great school year!

-Gary Tinsley, Principal
