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 800 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,
We are so excited for the return of the students for our new school year! Our schedule will remain 8:03 a.m. to 3:15 p.m., Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. On Wednesday we will still start at 10:00 a.m. and then end at 3:15 p.m.
We are following CalOSHA, CDE, and the CDC guidelines in planning our school year. We will work hard to create a safe environment for students and staff on our campus. Currently, masks are not required on campus but students and staff are welcome to wear them.
We have a slightly different dress code this year - the difference being that collared shirts are no longer required. Please take a look and make sure your child is in the dress code for the year. Thank you.
Also please note for safety reasons students should not have AirPods/earbuds in (except when doing an educational task) or have their cell phones out at any time while on the school campus.
We are also excited to again have sports going this year. Game schedules are available on our website calendar.
