Principal's Message

Welcome to Governor Thomas Johnson Middle School (TJMS) in historic Frederick, Maryland. Since opening in August 2000, TJMS has served as a model in school design that has captured national attention. At TJMS, we strive everyday to create an inclusive environment that celebrates diversity, academic achievement, and well-being. Our mission is to empower students for success today and persevere through tomorrow’s 21st century challenges.

 

I am honored with the opportunity to serve a school with such amazing students, a dedicated staff, and a supportive community. We strive to continue the legacy of success at TJMS and create a caring, welcoming environment for all of our students. TJMS is a diverse community of students, educators, support staff, parents and local organizations working collaboratively to provide an academically rigorous education. We are encouraging lifelong learners who take responsibility for their own educational goals and positive personal development. Although the middle school years can go by quickly, the three years at TJMS will serve as a fundamental foundation for future achievements. Excellence in teaching and learning is paramount to developing productive citizens who have promising and successful lives. The TJMS staff is committed to providing the instruction, learning opportunities, and support that our students deserve to become the leaders of tomorrow. 

 

Thank you for choosing TJMS and allowing our team to work with your children each day. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year.
