John Muir Wildcats. Today is a great day to learn.

Welcome to the Home of the Wildcats

PBIS Gold School medalWelcome 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,

Due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak, we are using virtual learning to continue the education of our students. Please make sure that your students are checking their Google Classroom every day for their work from their classes. Students should read, do Reading Plus, do Imagine Math and get exercise every day.

Our office is available to call for questions at (559) 992-8886, should you need help with a device, using a router to get internet for your child, or any other school issues. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to keep our students safe, but still learning.

We want all parents and students to know about our district meal distribution program.

Anyone in the community between the ages of 2 and 18 can pick up a lunch and breakfast from the TLC Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. But the week of April 27 to May 1, meals will be available at Mark Twain.

Only one meal set can be given per child, and children must be present to receive the meal. You do not have to go to your school. Please just go to the closest school. Parents drive up, following traffic to get the meals to your car, but again, children must be in the vehicle.

We are a Student Spaceflight Experiment School. This is our third year of participating. If you would like to help send our team of five scientists and required chaperones to Washington, DC, please contact Principal Dave Whitmore at John Muir Middle School at (559) 992-8886. You can also donate online at our JMMS Wildcat Webstore. Thank you for your consideration and donations.

The SSEP is about immersing and engaging students and their teachers in every facet of real science - on the high frontier, so that students can be scientists and experience science firsthand. SSEP is not a simulation—it is real!

For more information about this program, please see our SSEP flyer. For information about our district's Tax 503C Non-Profit Status, please view our district donation information letter. If you donate more than $500 as it goes to school board for approval and recognition, please fill out a form.

    Thank you,

    Dave Whitmore
