Welcome to East Jessamine Middle School!


The vision of East Jessamine Middle School is to equip students to be confident and creative problem-solvers who will succeed in a diverse and dynamic society.  In order to achieve this vision, we have created a strategic plan with big ideas centered around academic and behavioral supports, a rigorous curriculum through high-quality instruction, and personal connections that motivate students to achieve their goals.


We have a structured PBIS system that helps encourage positive character traits and excellence that we expect from all of our Jaguars including being respectful, responsible, determined, and engaged.  All of our Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) and grade level partners engage in systematic processes to analyze student data and differentiate instruction to meet the students’ needs within the standard progressions in order to ensure all students are on grade level in all core subjects by the end of eighth grade.  We are committed to engaging all school stakeholders by building supportive relationships in order to establish a positive learning culture and environment.


We are excited to partner with our community and hope to highlight many of the amazing things East Middle is doing for all of our students!
