Principal Christopher Billings

Welcome to Summit Middle School! We are located at 9500 Windsor Parkway in Johnston, Iowa and serve more than 1,100 sixth and seventh grade students in the Johnston Community School District.

Our highly-qualified staff is dedicated to implementing the middle school philosophy by meeting the academic, social, and emotional needs of the students we serve. We fully support the Johnston Community School District’s vision:  Creating a culture of excellence where students come first. In an effort to support this vision we have established the following goals:

  • All students will show growth in reading achievement
  • All students will show growth in math achievement
  • All students will feel emotionally safe at school

Effective initiatives such as Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS), Professional Learning Communities (PLC), and Reading and Writing Workshop have allowed our staff and students to thrive in a positive culture that focuses on high expectations and student well being. We are also in the second year of a 1:1 iPad initiative that is transforming the way staff and students communicate and learn in our building.

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