What Makes Our School Unique?

John Early Museum Magnet Middle Prep provides a warm and welcoming environment to promote student achievement. Our mission is to instill life long learning by building an education foundation through exploration, technology and discover. We will accomplish this through collaborative partnerships with parent and community stakeholder.

John Early also offers an array of support services to our students. We have a full time social worker on staff, two School Counselors, as well as a Centerstone counselor. In addition to these support services, students at John Early meet in Advisory groups on a weekly basis.

At John Early Middle Prep we believe:

  • All Students are entitled to an education.
  • All people have dignity, worth and value. Each person deserved to be treated with respect.
  • School climate, which must include a safe environment, affects learning dramatically. Language, behavior, dress, physical surroundings, and the beliefs of the school are parts of this climate that enhance learning.
