About Bemis

  • About our School

    Welcome to West Bemis Middle School. We are a brand new school created by JMCSS Vision 2020. We are the zoned middle school for the South cluster of Jackson-Madison Co. Schools. Our elementary students come from Denmark and South Elementary, and our students leave for South Side High School when their 8th grade year is finished. Some of our course offerings are Physical Education, Instrumental Music, Art, Chorus, as well as honors classes in all academic areas. Sports teams include football, cross-country, cheerleading, track, softball, basketball, and soccer.

    Situated in the historic area of Bemis, this school has quickly become a staple in our community. We are looking forward to partnering with you to build traditions and ensure the success of our students.
