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,

It is with excitement we begin the return to normal this year. Our schedule will return from 8:03 a.m. to 3:15 p.m., Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. On Wednesday we will return to our 10:00 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. late start schedule.

We are following CalOSHA, CDE, and the CDC guidelines in planning our school year. We will work hard to create a safe school environment where students are comfortable, healthy, and learning at a high level. We have a letter from our nurse for the school community giving information, warning signs of COVID, and testing information.

We want to remind parents and students about our district dress code.

Also please note for safety reasons students should not have AirPods/earbuds in (except when doing an educational task) or have their cell phone out at any time while on the school campus.

We are also excited to have sports going this year. Game schedules are available on our website calendar.

Thank you,

Dave Whitmore
