Principal Welcome


There has never been a more exciting time to be at Jinks Middle School! I am excited to be your principal! We have such amazing things in store for you! You will have a front row seat to all of the facilities’ upgrades that will be taking place in the coming months. The construction of our new gym is under way, our cafeteria is scheduled for renovation, and you will see the progress being made as we continue to recover from Hurricane Michael.


The standards are set high both behaviorally and academically for you. You will soar to new heights and you will be so proud of all that you will accomplish in your time with us! You are part of a school that is rich in tradition that has had many former students move on to become doctors, lawyers, members of congress, architects, engineers, teachers, principals, and even a school superintendent, just to name a few!


You will be given many opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities such as athletics and music. Our teachers and coaches will demand your very best, and you will be the reason that Jinks becomes a high-performing school. We will work together as a team to accomplish our goals, and when this school year is over, you will reflect on just how far you will have come in such a short period of time, all you have to do is BELIEVE! The best part is, we will just be getting started! I look forward to working with you to make our school the best middle school in the district! #BelieveinTeam


Proud to lead you.
