Principal's Message

The 2019-2020 school year provided us with many challenges, but in spite of everything, JCMS grew in many ways. For me, being part of this school has been a joy.


We look forward to the challenges we face beginning school during a pandemic. Our students, teachers, and staff are resilient and ready for the work ahead.


The outpouring of support we have received from the community shows Jackson County contains everything needed to push our students to new heights of learning. Once again, we will be calling on all of our faculty, staff, and parents to work as a singular unit to best serve our children. This year more than ever, working together with patience and care will be of the utmost importance.


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


Best Regards,


Kent Shephard
