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!

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.
