Welcome to Port Jervis Middle School!

A Message from Principal Jean Fazzino Lain - for the new school year 2017 - 18

  Work Hard.

Middle School Principal Jean Lain

  Respect Others.

  Port Pride.


As principal of Port Jervis Middle School – PJMS – I am thrilled to open our doors and welcome students, their families and our faculty and staff to the 2017-2018 school year.

In education, each new year brings with it renewed optimism and a recommitment to our work and our students. A new year brings changes as well! This year PJMS welcomes Ms. Tammy Lara who is joining our Math Department!

Middle school is an exciting time! As the bridge between elementary and high schools, it is a time of incredible growth and access to new opportunities. During this time, everyone involved needs to remain committed to ongoing conversations and collaboration. Remember, it’s all about each and every student’s success.

Our PJMS students are reminded daily that they have the power to succeed and can make great things happen.

Through the wide-range of available activities, our students learn to balance their academic responsibilities while developing important personal skills and passions. Our faculty and staff teach, guide, challenge, monitor and support our students. And because of it, our students learn, grow and thrive.

Please utilize the website  to read our daily announcements, learn about special events and stay connected.

You are welcome to call or email our administrators, teachers or Guidance Department so we can assist you in any way.

Together we will make our students’ middle school years the best ever!

Jean Fazzino Lain
PJMS Principal
