Welcome to James Madison Intermediate

James Madison Intermediate School is a learning community that serves approximately 600 students in Grades Three through Five.  In addition, The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Building serves approximately 100 Pre-K students of varying needs and abilities.  Our student population represents diverse cultures, values, customs, languages, traditions, and religious influences, which merge here to form a colorful tapestry of educational experience.  Our goal is to educate the “whole child” by providing learning experiences that promote academic, social, and emotional growth.  Our classrooms are learner-centered and focus on active learning experiences


Our school community is well served by our teachers, support staff, and parents. Balanced literacy is the core of our reading and writing program.  Our academic programs are rigorous, and critical thinking activities are embedded within our curriculum. Our students are taught to seek relevance and to make real-life connections to their learning. Our excellent physical education, visual arts, gifted and talented, and vocal and instrumental music programs enhance our students’ learning experiences. Our staff and students benefit from the services provided by our Curriculum Resource Teacher who provides staff development to our teachers on a daily basis.

 

Social development is essential to positive self-esteem and the ability to sustain positive relationships within collaborative learning experiences. Our Guidance Counselor actively promotes positive social skills which assist students in dealing with conflicts.  Our Character Counts Program emphasizes the six pillars of character education: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship.  To further enhance the positive atmosphere here at JMI, we participate in the Positive Behavior Support in Schools initiative, or PBSIS. The PBSIS team consists of several staff members and a parent who have completed many hours of training provided by the state, to develop incentives and programs at JMI to enhance our already positive school culture.  Our School Nurse provides a “Growing Up” program to our fourth grade students.  In partnership with our PTO, we have several after-school clubs and extension activities which compliment and enhance our curriculum. 

 
Students at James Madison Intermediate School continue to be inspired learners,who strive to meet and exceed the goals set for them by their teachers, administrators, and parents. Thus, our school aims to continue improving testing results, develop technological skills and reinforce positive character traits that will enable our students to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century.

  

Our goal at JMI is to provide a positive and safe learning community for our students. It is our belief that a culture of kindness and a positive learner-centered environment is imperative to academic success.

 

Michael J. Duggan, Principal
