  • JHMS has provided an outstanding educational experience for my child. We have had the opportunity to be active as parents in all aspects of our child's education. JHMS middle school teachers work closely with parents to make sure that each child is successful and to see that their individual needs are met. I would strongly recommend that parents consider this magnet school option for their children when they enter the Decatur Public School system
