JMG (Jobs for MS Graduates) is a program in our school district that
is setting higher standards of excellence in preparing our students to
be college and career ready. Setting the bar for other schools to
mimic our achievements at such a magnitude is only possible with
experience and grace by our very own Mrs. Kimmons. Jobs for MS
Graduates is a program that is tailored to fit the needs of students
and our school partners whom all share common factors of competency-
and experiential-based curriculum.
The primary objective of this core program is to keep students fully
engaged in high school through graduation, leading to enrollment in
post-secondary education, a continued education credential or training
program or a quality job with a career pathway.

dine on some delicious and delectable dishes. The meal was prepared by
