JYMS News & Information

  • An important message from Mr. Fisher, JYMS Principal:

    July 27, 2021

    Dear Jaguar Community,

    Greetings!! I am Mr. Mike Fisher, your principal at John Young Middle School. I am pleased to be joined by Ashley Litwin, Brandon Trtan, and Sean Steinkellner to make up the JYMS administrative team. Miss Litwin will serve as our 8th grade assistant principal, as well as athletic director for JYMS. Mr. Trtan will focus on attendance and student academic growth. We are very excited to have Mr. Steinkellner as our 7th grade assistant principal. Together our administration team brings a wealth of experience from both the elementary and high school levels which will help bridge the gap for our students during their middle school years. We are thrilled to start the new school year at JYMS and look forward to working with students, staff, parents, and community members to help all Jaguars become successful lifelong learners.

    Next week is our schedule pick-up and walk-through on August 4th and 5th. This is a great opportunity for students to get familiar with the building, practice their locker combination, and 7th graders along with new 8th graders can pick up their devices. Please take advantage and bring your student next week!

JYMS Honors Program

  • The JYMS Honors Program is designed to offer academic challenges beyond those required by the Indiana Academic Standards to highly capable seventh and eighth grade students. These courses will ask students to learn and understand the grade level standards, as well as use their reading, writing, and speaking skills to demonstrate a higher level of goal attainment. If accepted into any honors class, you are accepting these responsibilities and the expectations.

    Click the Honors Program icon below to fill out the application. Completing this application does not guarantee acceptance or enrollment. The JYMS Honors Program Identification Committee will review the application and additional assessments to determine if your student is accepted in the program.
