     Red Trojan





    July 29, 2019


    Dear Trojan Community, 

         As the principal of John Hopkins Middle School (JHMS), it is my pleasure to welcome you all to the 2019 – 2020 school year.  Our faculty and staff are extremely excited to have our scholars back in our classrooms and hallways, filling these areas with excitement and enthusiasm for learning.  It is our mission to create a population of scholars who are principled, caring, reflective, and who are strong communicators.  Additionally, we strive to challenge each scholar to grow in his or her academic abilities and to meet all requirements to become “high school” ready at the end of their middle school experience.  At JHMS, we have assembled a strong and dedicated instructional team who spends hours preparing and designing standards-based and engaging lessons to challenge our scholars through the principles of the International Baccalaureate (IB) framework. 

            Please save the date, Thursday, September 19.  JHMS will have its Back to School Night from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. on this evening.  We encourage families to come and meet your children’s teachers and learn more about academic expectations of each class.

         As we continue our journey to transform John Hopkins Middle School into the school “where all scholars want to be”, I encourage each parent and community stakeholder to partner with us in this effort.  Please do not hesitate to contact us during office hours at (727) 893-2400 or via email.  You can find any staff member’s email address by visiting the faculty / staff section on our school’s website

    I look forward to working with you and your children this school year!



    Carlmon Jones, Principal

    IB Middle Years Programme
    John Hopkins Middle School Center for International Studies in the Arts and Multimedia Journalism is pursing authorization as an International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme School and is currently an MYP Candidate School.

    The IB MYP is for all students in grades 6-8. The aim of the IB MYP is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world. Students are encouraged to examine their world from all angles, giving students the skills to look at issues from a local, national and global perspective. The IB MYP strives to help all students intentionally develop the ten IB Learner Profile attributes to become Inquirers, Knowledgeable, Thinkers, Communicators, Principled, Open-Minded, Caring, Risk-Takers, Balanced, and Reflective.

    While developing the ten attributes, students take courses in eight subject groups: language acquisition, language and literature, individuals and societies, science, math, arts, physical education and health, and design. At least one unit during each school year will involve be interdisciplinary and will involve all subject areas. In cooperation with the IB MYP curriculum, students may choose to participate in focus classes in art, dance, instrumental music, theatre, vocal music, or multimedia journalism. Students who choose a focus area will have the one to two classes in their focus area assigned in the class schedule. Their focus class is the arts portion of the eight subject groups.

    John Hopkins Middle School Center for International Studies in the Arts and Multimedia Journalism strives to include all students in the classroom. Each student at John Hopkins will participate in the IB MYP classes growing them into lifelong learners and global thinkers.
