A Message from Our Principal
The faculty and staff of Andrew Jackson Middle School are committed to collaborative teaching and incorporating strategies that promote student-focused discussions and interaction. AJMS has a very diverse population. Therefore, we appreciate differences and vow to learn from people of all cultures and ethnicities.
Andrew Jackson Middle School’s students always give one degree more. They strive to attain academic and social success by observing the core values of respect, responsibility, persistence and achievement. Additionally, AJMS students REACH to achieve their personal best by demonstrating respect, enthusiasm, achievement, citizenship and hard work.
Andrew Jackson Middle School operates on the premise that parents, students, teachers, and the school administration must work together to garner success. The complete alliance of each of the aforementioned groups is a necessary component to garner success!
That’s the AJ Way!
Learn Today……..Lead Tomorrow!
