Principal Joy Wiebers

Welcome to Summit Middle School!  Located in the Johnston Community School District, we serve more than 1,100 students in sixth and seventh grade. We are committed to supporting students and families academically, socially, and emotionally.

We strive to promote excellence and growth for all students in academics and student well-being.  We embrace a middle school philosophy by encouraging students to explore and experience many different courses. The Universal Constructs from the Iowa Core is woven into each of our classes. These include: critical thinking, complex communication, creativity, collaboration, flexibility and adaptability, and productivity and accountability. We have an amazing staff that is both highly qualified and highly dedicated to our students, ensuring they have a wonderful experience while attending Summit. This year, our staff is committed to three building goals. They are:

  • Individual student growth for all students in the areas of reading and math
  • 100% of our staff will teach, model, or reinforce and acknowledge positive behaviors
  • 100% of Summit students will regularly use instructional technology to express content area understanding

We are particularly excited about our technology goal, as we have recently rolled out iPads to our students.  This has changed the dynamics of our instruction and engagement for our students.  We are thrilled to have been able to do this through the support of the district and our school board.

I am proud to serve as principal of Summit Middle School and look forward to meeting you! For additional information or questions, please contact me directly. Follow us on Twitter for current news and updates:  @JCSD_SMS.

Sincerely,
Joy Wiebers
