Principal Brent Riessen

Welcome to Johnston Middle School! Located in the Johnston Community School District, we serve more than 1100 students in eighth and ninth grades. We are committed to supporting students and families academically, socially, and emotionally.

We are proud of our students in all aspects of their education. Our students not only excel in the classroom but they also exceed expectations in our extra and co-curricular programs. This past year we were named a Capturing Kids’ Hearts Showcase School, as well as an Apple Distinguished School. These designations are something that we proud of, as it recognizes the hard work our staff is doing to provide a tremendous experience for students.

I am proud to serve as principal of Johnston 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_JMS.
