Jackson Hole Middle School is the best school. It has wonderful kids. Great teachers that actully make going to school fun, not a drag. It challenges kids to struggle but to learn from thier mistakes. I went their in 6th grade and had the best year. There is some bulling. But mainly the students are very nice and well rounded! I loved going to JHMS. I'm moving. I will miss JHMS very much. In conclusion, JHMS is a great school and your child will love to go to school and learn and grow.

Jackson Hole Middle School is the best school I have ever attended. I have attended schools in Florida, but they are nothing like Wyoming. Wyoming school systems are far better than most South-Eastern schools. Long live the class of 2014! I am a proud 8th grader of Jackson Hole Middle School.

Jackson Hole Middle School is a great school but needs to have more classes that count as great and are fun not only for the eighth graders. Overall this is a good school and I also like the new reward program the middle school has.
