Johnston Middle School Name Change Survey

As you are most likely aware, the HISD Board of Trustees voted on February 11th to rename A. S. Johnston MS. The school has served the community at its present location since 1960. The JMS Principal Mr. Sanders created a simple 2 question Survey.

He has asked for community input. The link is: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/9M8LNPP

Editorial comment: JMS is a well-loved and well regarded community school. Not only do the zoned students from Westbury and other nearby neighborhoods attend, but JMS is a well-regarded Fine Arts magnet school that draws many students from all over the city. We are blessed in this area to have our children able to attend Parker elementary and its award winning Music magnet program, before heading on to MS at JMS and then on to WHS where the Fine Arts program was reinstated last month. People don't refer to Westbury as Jazz-bury for no reason!
