"Make Good Choices...Have Great Days"

Welcome to Port Jervis Middle School!

A Message from Principal Jean Fazzino Lain - for October 2017

  Work Hard.

Middle School Principal Jean Lain

  Respect Others.

  Port Pride.


The beginning of the school year is always busy, and we are off to a great start. Our 7th graders are acclimating themselves to PJMS’ schedule and procedures.  Our 8th graders have stepped-up as role models and helpers.


This year PJMS will focus on Participation.   Participation includes providing parent workshops and educating everyone on the importance of 100% participating in the NYS ELA and Math Assessments. The data from these activities is critical for us to make progress in all the varied aspects of an academic environment.

We are proud of the work we do here..this year we will make sure you are aware and proud as well.
