Cancer Awareness Month  - Did you know that more than 30% of cancer can be prevented?  How?  By not using tobacco, choosing a healthy diet, being physically active, and maintaining a healthy weight.  In developing countries, up to 20% of cancer deaths can also be prevented by immunizing against the infection of HBV and HPV.

"To Assure High Levels of Learning for ALL students"

The faculty of John Glenn Middle School of International Studies believes learning to be a process in which each student discovers and constructs meaning from information and experiences. The individual needs, background, and developmental level of each student serve as the starting points for all middle school learning activities.
Our goal is to challenge each student intellectually and personally by providing opportunities for student choice, self-direction, and responsibility. Students learn interpersonal skills, the importance of community, and appreciation of cultural diversity.  Students are valued and accepted; and, in return learn to value and accept others.

In close concert with the K-12 progression the JGMS faculty is dedicated to providing a seamless and well-articulated curriculum for all students.

Due to our focus on school wide safety, students must wear their ID lanyard at all times, while on school grounds. Every student is given a JGMS ID card and lanyard. Replacement cost for ID & lanyard is $10.00 and can be purchased in the front office. Students must only use a school issued lanyard. Students must not put stickers or other objects on their ID card or lanyard. Students must not deface their ID card or lanyard in any way. Personal lanyards are not acceptable.

Not wearing IDs on campus is considered defiance and is subject to discipline.

1st Offense: Lunch Detention*

2nd Offense: 3 Lunch Detentions

3rd Offense: Saturday School

4 or More: Saturday School or Suspension, at the discretion of the administration

*If school ID and lanyard are brought in prior to lunch detention on the first offense, lunch detention will be waived for that day only.
