•       Welcome parents and guardians to Jefferson Davis Middle School. It's a new school year and we are super excited. Our theme this year is " The Sky's the Limit; Mission: Creating Academic Results Everyday".  I encourage you to visit our campus and meet our faculty and staff.  Our highly qualified teachers create an environment where our students feel cared for, thus creating a learning environment in which our students will take the risks necessary to achieve academically.  Our goal is to INSPIRE, CHALLENGE and SUPPORT our students academically, socially, and emotionally, while helping them to develop the skill sets to be critical thinkers and problem solvers.

          Our mission is to bring back to the Jefferson Davis Community a learning environment in which relationships are as important as rules, where all students feel valued.   It is our goal to create a learning experience that is worthy of a great education.  As principal of Jefferson Davis Middle School, I am whole heartedly dedicated and committed to the tremendously important task of closing the achievement gap at our school. To achieve this monumental task, we are committed to fostering relationships between our staff, our students’ families, and our community partners, to help us achieve this goal. 

          Jefferson Davis Middle School offers a dynamic and diversified educational experience designed to meet the needs of all our students. A variety of courses are provided to our students to facilitate opportunities to enhance academic knowledge base and prepare them for college and the workforce.    Our STEM, Pre-Early College, AVID and Cambridge programs offer our students a 21st Century personalized learning experience where students are challenged academically through a very rigorous curriculum.  Our partnership with Achievers for Life (AFL), Communities in School, TEAM UP extended day program, Non Violence Program (NVP USA), Westside Family Resource Center, Junior Achievement, and AWARE provide wraparound services such as tutoring, mentoring, and counseling that further support our students in need of additional interventions. We are confident that all students can achieve success if they believe they can. We encourage our students to participate in sports, band, art, clubs, and activities to assist them in developing into well-rounded students.

          Thank you for choosing Jefferson Davis Middle and entrusting us with your child’s education. “Charger Pride”

     Educationally Yours,

    Ms. Nidia Ashby, Principal
