Making News at the Middle School

    We, the Jersey Shore Area Middle School Staff, believe:
    • We must encourage our students to understand the importance of knowledge in this every-changing world, and therefore the need to be life-long learners.
    • We must create an environment of caring for student and the caring for each other in order to everyone to flourish.
    • We must challenge our students to grow academically by engaging then 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.
