Welcome to the Home of the Wildcats

Welcome to the Internet home of John Muir Middle School—where we prepare our students to fulfill our motto: We ARE future high school graduates! Our school is located in the central region of San Joaquin Valley, a beautiful, rich, and highly fertile area of central California. JMMS is one of six schools in the Corcoran Unified School District. We serve approximately 700 students in sixth through eighth grades. The John Muir wildcats are united by a love of learning. Both the student body and our enthusiastic teachers and staff members strive to meet each new challenge with a determined attitude while respecting one another, school property, and most importantly, ourselves. 

We designed our new school website to be a helpful resource for the parents, students, teachers, and community members of JMMS. Please spend some time exploring the pages of our site to learn more about our school vision, keep up with the latest news and events, or check out our photo gallery to get a glimpse of the exciting lives of our wildcats in action.

A Message from Our Principal

John Muir Families,

Welcome back to another exciting year!

We have a very exciting announcement. This year our students are going to participate in the Student Spaceflight Experiment Program as part of the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education and the Arthur C. Clarke Institute for Space Education. This is an amazing opportunity for our students. An astronaut aboard the International Space Station will perform an experiment that one of our student groups designs. John Muir Middle School will be around one of only 24 communities in the United States and Canada that were selected to participate in this amazing opportunity. Please take a moment to read more about the Student Spaceflight Experiment Program.

The school year starts on Monday, August 14. We are excited to welcome back all of our 7th and 8th graders as well as meeting all of our new incoming 6th graders. Please make sure you review the dress code before the start of the year.

    Thank you,

    Dave Whitmore
