JJMS is part of an award-winning composting initiative
Many John Jay Middle School students have been separating organics from their cafeteria waste since elementary school.
In the coming months, members of the Sustainability Club will have an opportunity to see what happens next--by visiting the organics recycling facility that processes food scraps into compost. This is part of KLSD's award-winning composting initiative. MORE.

the benefits of academic teams
One of the hallmarks of John Jay Middle School is right there in the name. It’s a middle school, not a junior high school. The main difference between the two, Principal Rich Leprine points out, is that middle schools use academic teams to meet the developmental needs of eleven to fourteen year olds. MORE.
Paint Like an Egyptian!
A favorite aspect of sixth graders’ study of ancient Egypt is exploring the paintings found in this culture’s temples and burial places. This year, students will create their own Egyptian tomb painting.
“This is the first time that middle school teams have scheduled an 80-minute block of art to Egyptian tomb paintings,” said Mrs. Jean Capuano, sixth grade art teacher. “Creating their own painting will reinforce students’ learning about this culture.”
The art studio naturally lends itself to an engaging, active learning. Students will learn about the relevance of symbols and colors the ancient Egyptians used, as well as try their hand at the ancient method of painting on plaster.
The sixth grade’s Egyptian tomb paintings will be displayed later this winter.
