Welcome to Joseph George Middle School, a 6 - 8th grade Visual and Performing Arts School. At George our mission is to ensure students are challenged and engaged academically, socially, emotionally, and behaviorally. Joseph George Middle School is a twice honored California Distinguished School. Our generous campus is situated in the east foothills of San Jose, California, in the heart of Silicon Valley. All students in our diverse population successfully develop maximum potential during this special period of growth. We create a safe and secure learning environment where students are creative and are motivated to greater academic success preparation. By deepening their reservoir of knowledge and experiences, we prepare students for their lives beyond formal schooling. We plan instruction addressing multiple intelligences and learning styles, establish a positive and supportive environment, and provide extended and enrichment activities in music and the arts. Students and teachers are diving into the new Common Core State Standards. We are embracing the Common Core shifts
with enthusiasm. As we prepare our students to be 21st Century learners, we are integrating The Four C's - Communication,
Collaboration, Creativity and Critical Thinking.
Joseph George Viking Acts
