We, the Jersey Shore Area Middle School Staff, believe:

  • We must encourage our students to understand the importance of knowledge in this ever-changing world, and therefore the need to be life-long learners
  • We must create an environment of caring for students and them caring for each other in order for everyone to flourish
  • We must challenge our students to grow academically by engaging them with technology and opportunities for higher order thinking skills to be utilized
  • We must remember that we are all members of a global community that thrives with responsible citizens
