Welcome to the St. James Middle School

  • St. James Middle School had an amazing 2016 - 2017 school year.  Our 8th-grade girls’ basketball team went undefeated both their 7th and 8th-grade seasons, we were chosen as a National Showcase School for Capturing Kids Hearts, one of our students was crowned Miss Missouri Jr. High and another of our students wrestled in several National tournaments and was All-American.  One thing is for sure, we have amazing staff and students at the Middle School.

    We have 4 new faces on staff at the Middle School this year.  Dana Moore joins us as our new 7th-grade math teacher.  Astrid Horst is going to be teaching in our Special Education department.  On the custodial team, we have Tim McCormick and Aaron Craft.  So excited to have these folks join our Middle School family.

    This year we have the largest class of 6th graders coming to us from the elementary that has come through since I have been here.  All though they are large in numbers, they are a great group and have been a lot of fun.  The Middle School offers many activities for students to be involved in.  We have school sponsored sports in 7th and 8th grade.  We have great vocal music and band departments.  We also offer many various clubs for students to join.  Please encourage your child to get involved.

    The Middle School encourages parent and community involvement.  Please come by and see the many wonderful things going on here.  You are welcome to join us for ball games, assemblies, or just come by for a visit.  

    We are looking forward to having another great year this year.
