Jarrett Middle School is a high quality, standards based, and performing school! With a very dedicated faculty and staff. Relatively engaged students, parents and community members. The school has an all around beautiful campus with great weather year round! As a former student, employee, volunteer, and now guardian of younger siblings going to JMS; there is no way to truly express the gratitude and appreciation I have for this school and those who help make it such a success!
