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,
Due to the continued outbreak of COVID-19, we are unable to return students to school. We are going to be using distance learning to continue the education of our students. Please understand that we are instructing your students virtually from a distance; they are not in online school nor are they being homeschooled. This fall will look much different from the spring. Your student will need to log in to their classes each day and will have a day that looks much like regular school day except they will be home and will be interacting with their teachers and students via Zoom and other web interactive platforms.
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.
In order to make sure that all parents/guardians and students understand the requirements for distance learning and how we can best help educate students in this setting, we will hold meetings prior to the beginning of the start of the year on August 12, 2020. To keep the meeting safe and productive, please come with one parent/guardian, the student, and the student’s iPad. Everyone should wear masks. We will hold the meeting in a socially distant and safe manner. This will give us a chance to make sure that your child has everything that they need in order to succeed in the distance learning environment. You will need to meet with administration before school starts on August 12. If you have more than one child, you can bring them at one time and hold separate meetings to avoid multiple trips.
If you cannot make any of the times listed on this schedule, please contact the office at (559) 992-8886. Please complete online registration prior to the meeting.
We want all parents and students to know about our district meal distribution program. The district will distribute lunches at Mark Twain, Brett Harte, and John C. Fremont from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Students will be in attendance-based classes until 1:45 p.m. at JM and until 1:30 p.m. at the elementary schools, which is why we have the later times. You will need the child's student number to get a meal this year. Please remain in your vehicle when you pick up the meal.
