Welcome to James Irwin Charter Middle School where educational reform is demonstrated and the mission set before us embraces character development and academic rigor. With such a mission, ongoing evaluation is imperative as we are continually striving to do what is best for students.
We continue to work hard, initiating changes and improvements to make James Irwin Charter Middle School stand out among its “peers”. We consistently test well above the neighboring schools in the district and are competitive with many of the top performing schools in our region.
Community service and leadership have become a major thrust for our students here at JICMS. We care AND share!
- From October through February every year, we conduct our school community service projects. Our school families make a concerted effort to serve one another through our service fund raisers.
- In October through December, we collect food and financial donations to feed several of our own families in need for the week of Thanksgiving and another week around Christmas. Additionally, the children in these families are blessed with gifts through our Operation Christmas Stocking.
- In January, we participate in Pennies for Patients to give towards cancer research efforts. We then culminate our school service project fundraisers with raising money for the American Heart Association and making heart awareness our focus through different activities. In each of our projects, our school community rises to and exceeds each challenge.
Our staff is professional, committed, and highly qualified. Every teacher, instructional assistant and staff member understands and lives our motto of “doing what is best for students”.
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit.”
We are always looking for ways to improve and grow! We know we are not perfect, yet we also know that we have what it takes to achieve excellence. Through our leadership emphasis and House system, our students become engaged with and cognitive of their ability to set goals and strive for more than the status quo. Our school community is to be commended for their proactive, beginning with the end in mind, and think win-win approach.
Please let us know if we can be of service to you in any way.
