Welcome to Jefferson Middle School!

Dear Jefferson Middle School Parents and Students,

My name is Carol Ann Knight, and I am both honored and excited to be your Principal. Jefferson Middle School has a rich tradition of excellence in academics, fine arts, and athletics. We will continue to provide highly qualified educators that are committed to providing a year of engaging, meaningful, and rigorous work in our classrooms. 

Middle School is a time of transition that comes with new experiences and new responsibilities. As students become independent and increasingly involved in activities, your ongoing involvement becomes a critical component in their success. JMS invites students and parents to partner with us to meet the individual needs of each and every student as we strive to help them develop their strengths and reach their full potential. 

I am excited about the upcoming school year and consider myself fortunate and thankful to have the opportunity to work with amazing students and parents, an outstanding faculty and staff, and a community that truly supports our school system. If you ever have a question or concern, please feel free to contact me at any time.
