Principal’s Message

Welcome,  students,  family,  friends,  community  members and guests to John  R.  Wooden  Middle  School.  On behalf of the students, staff and JRW school community,  we extend our best wishes.  We  strive  to  live  up  to  John R.  Wooden’s  words,  “Make  each  day  your  masterpiece.”

Our goal in this human endeavor is to work together and to improve daily with a growth mindset.  We try to  INSPIRE,  COLLABORATE   and  ENGAGE with each other in an effort to prepare our students for their college and career futures while helping each other grow from our experiences together.

We offer a diverse curriculum with opportunities for students to achieve high school credit  in the following courses:  Art  2D, Geography, Algebra  I,  Biology,  Career  Prep,  Health,  Physical Education, and Spanish.

Furthermore, we feel our biggest strength is  our positive atmosphere along with great people focusing on building strong relationships.  We  believe  the old  saying,  “Students  don’t  care  how  much  you  know  until  they  know  how much  you  care.”

If you are  a current member of our school family, welcome to our website. Please feel free to send us your thoughts, suggestions, and recommendations.

Your opinion matters to us.  If you are  a guest and are searching for a school that focuses on growth and building strong relationships, welcome and please allow us the opportunity to meet with you and introduce ourselves while answering any questions you might have.
