JCMS is often overlooked because students only attend for 2 years but many on staff seem dedicated. The staff have instituted a good system for classroom interactions and engaging effective lessons. There are tons of clubs to join. The athletic program is very good for a middle school. They have a competetive 8th grade show choir. They also have a state-of-the-art library media center.

Jennings County Middle School teachers are subpar. They just present the material sink or swim your on your own at JCMS.
I am a military wife and mother of three who has experienced many schools administrations and teachers in the last nine years. Both of my sons were honor students and very enthusiastic about school through most of elementary. We recently lived in the D.C./ Maryland area where both of them attended an on base middle school which also allowed civilian children to attend. During those two years I dealt with racism bullying and teachers who would not even return my calls. I finally came back home to J.C. this year and enrolled my 13 yr. old son in the Middle School. His whole personality drive and willingness to succeed has finally started to come back. The administration has been patient kind and very informative as to their agenda which allows them to follow him from this year to graduation. This school has changed our lives for the better!
Violence is not being addressed properly.Students who attack other students should be expelled for the entire school year not just a week or two. concerned mother
This school gives the appearance of a large building but it's an illusion. There are too many students not enough classrooms. Too many students not enough teachers. Classrooms are packed. There are some good teachers here who are willing to go the extra mile and reach out to those students in need. However there are also some who just come to work to put in their time. Discipline at this school seems wishy washy. For example today's offense which is punished may not be punished tomorrow...or an offense that results in an afterschool detention today may not tomorrow. There are nemerous and frivolous rules and regulations in the handbook in regard to classroom behavior and dress code. Some of them are quite comical. Once again none of these 'rules' are routinely enforced. Basically from my observation it appears that the students 'run' this school.
this school is one of the lowest quality schools in the area.
