Academic success. High standards of personal conduct. Integrity, confidence, compassion. Working hard and playing hard. These are just some of the qualities Jean Ribault Middle School instills in our students during these critical middle school years. Where some see middle school simply as a transition between elementary and high school, we envision more. We expect our students to aim higher, discover new passions, learn to be self-reliant, and prepare to achieve their dreams.
For parents, seeing is believing. Parents love our focus on the whole child as we offer a safe, nurturing environment for students to grow and explore. They love that, as a magnet school, we offer Early High School Program. This accelerated program offers students the opportunity to obtain high school and college credits, a valuable head start on future success. Ribault Middle parents also appreciate our convenient campus with Sallye B. Mathis Elementary and Jean Ribault High right next door. This unique campus structure is a bonus for busy families with children of various ages, but it also brings with it a priceless sense of community for all ages.
Ribault Middle School students benefit from the attention and care of dedicated, passionate teachers who advocate on their behalf and offer steadfast support when academic challenges arise. Our students love choosing from a long list of extracurricular activities including the Robotics Club, Math Club, Scholar Bowl, exceptional band and music programs and more. They develop teamwork skills and good sportsmanship through our Ribault Middle School Colts Athletics Program featuring basketball, football, baseball, soccer and cheerleading. Whether participating or cheering from the stands, our students enjoy a sense of belonging along with great pride in their Colts community.
