Purple Star School

We are proud to announce our recent achievement of the Purple Star Designation, a testament to our unwavering commitment to supporting military families. At our school, we go above and beyond to create a welcoming environment for our military-connected students. From hosting heartwarming military family breakfasts to nurturing a dedicated student ambassador program for newcomers, we strive to make every transition seamless. On Veteran's Day 2023, we honored our heroes by showcasing a moving display featuring loved ones who have served or are currently serving in the military. At Katherine Johnson Middle School, we embrace and celebrate the strength that comes from diversity and unity within our school community.
