Welcome to John Glenn Middle School!


Our 2015-16 school theme is “Whatever It Takes.”  Our goal is for EVERY student at John Glenn to earn As, Bs, and Cs in all their classes – no Ds and Fs. 

To accomplish this goal, we have teachers and academic support liaisons working with students before, during, and after school daily. 

John Glenn is a special place with the adults constantly doing “Whatever It Takes” to support the learning of students and ensure every student is successful. 

We are proud of the school we’ve created and love working with our students.

Attached is the John Glenn School Calendar for the 2015-2016 school year. It is a PDF document and can be printed for your convenience.
