Welcome to the 2020-21 school year. I am Dr. Greg Caine, Sr., and I would like to welcome you to Jefferson Middle School: A STEAM Academy.
We are so excited to begin another school year. We have an amazing staff, and they are anxious to begin a new learning journey with your student. We have unique and exciting learning opportunities in the area of STEAM education in which all students will participate. We believe through the hands-on learning opportunities created through STEAM education our students will demonstrate critical thinking, project planning and development, and creativity. We are moving our students even further than before in preparation for an ever changing world. We look forward to a great school year. It is a great time to be a Cyclone!
Jefferson Middle School
Jefferson Middle School first opened as Columbia's high school in 1911. The "new high school," built in 1911, was converted to Jefferson Junior High School in 1927 when David H. Hickman High School opened. In 2013 Jefferson Junior High School became Jefferson Middle School, becoming one of Columbia's six outstanding middle schools.
The mascot is the Cyclone.
School Vision: Jefferson Middle School Steam Academy will provide a challenging, caring, and stimulating environment where children will achieve their fullest potential.
School Mission: Developing curious minds into compassionate, connected citizens...one student at a time.
