SchoolWelcome to James Island Middle School

Thank you for visiting James Island Middle School's new website.  We encourage you to contact us—using the information at the bottom of this page—if we can answer any questions that you have about your child, our learning community, or the current year. 


We look forward to partnering with you and your family as we make the 2014-2015 school year the best yet.



What a great start we have had to the school year!  I want to thank all of you for the kind words and support your have offered our teachers and myself as this year begins.  It is great to see such an active group of parents and we had a wonderful turn-out at our Open House/Cookout.  I look forward to seeing these great turnouts continue as our school year moves on.

I would also like to thank some of our business partners who have helped us get off to such a tremendous start.  Bi-Lo not only donated all of the food and supplies for our open house, they also came out to cook and to serve.  Paisano’s is also hosting a JIMS spirit night on Monday, September 8th with proceeds going to our PTSA.

The school year is moving quickly with progress reports coming out on September 17th.  This will be an early release day for students and a time for you to schedule a conference with your child’s teachers.  Teachers will be available from 2-4 on this day.  Please call the office at 762-2784 if you would like to schedule a conference.

Thank you again for helping us get off to a great 2014-2015 school year.  
J. Hudson, Principal
James Island Middle School
