• Principal Joiner     Principal Bio:

    We are incredibly thankful to work alongside the talented students and supportive families at Jenkins Middle School.  Our staff takes pride in delivering an educational experience unmatched by any other middle school in the Pikes Peak region and beyond. The collective commitment by staff, students, parents, and the community have contributed to our school earning the Colorado Trailblazer Schools to Watch Award, Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Award, National PTA School of Excellence Award, and Gold for “Best of the Springs” voting by the citizens of the Colorado Springs region.  Our rigorous instruction, extracurricular opportunities, and core values of ROAR (respect, ownership, achievement, responsibility) offer our students the chance to be successful leaders in their future endeavors.

    One of our central themes at Jenkins Middle School is “Be EXTRAordinary!”  Our rallying cry as a staff and student body is to give an extra effort and go above what is considered average by many.  “Shoot for the moon.  If you miss you will land in the stars.”  That quote speaks to our mindset of giving our best effort no matter the task or situation.  Being ordinary is easy.  Being EXTRAordinary is a choice and character trait we expect of everyone in our school community.  This contagious attitude and movement is what makes our school culture one that bleeds positivity and excitement.

    If you already are a part of the Jenkins Middle School team, thank you for all that you do to make this such a special place to learn.  If you are a guest and would like more information about what we offer at Jenkins Middle School, please contact our front office and set up an appointment with a member of our administration or counseling teams.  We are here to serve you.
