Dear J.M. Alexander families,

J.M Alexander Middle School has a long-standing tradition of of excellence. Established in 1960, we have served the families of North Mecklenburg for more than 50 years. In 2017, we moved into a new facility.  We are an IB magnet school with a neighborhood attendance boundary. We serve more than 900 students and families from Charlotte, Huntersville, Davidson and Cornelius.

At J.M. Alexander (JMA), scholars experience a balanced, rigorous curriculum with a focus on student-centered education, collaboration, the arts, world language and service. Our IB units of instruction emphasize inquiry, creative thinking and international perspectives. Our vision is to provide all students with a rigorous, relevant and world-class education. In August of 2018 we were named a nationally certified magnet school by Magnet Schools of America. This designation recognizes exemplary magnet schools that consistently demonstrate the organization’s standards of excellence.

Let me tell you a little about myself. I attended CMS schools and am a proud graduate of Garinger High School. January 2019 marked my 30th year as a CMS educator. I spent 18 years as a social studies classroom teacher. I have also served in multiple administrative roles, including dean of students, assistant principal and principal. I earned my bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, a master’s degree in education from Columbia College and administrative certification from Winthrop University.

As principal of J.M. Alexander, I am committed to seeing every student succeed. That means having every student prepared for the next step on the educational journey. Our school has have a place for every student and we work to provide a safe and comfortable environment for everyone. In addition to our academics, we offer a wide variety of extracurricular activities, including middle school sports, Science Olympiad, Future City, chess club, cooking club, Battle of the Books, and the National Junior Honor Society.

I look forward to working with you and your student. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have issues or concerns by emailing me at or calling me at 980-343-3840.

Thank you for choosing Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools and J. M. Alexander Middle School.
