From Our Principal

Dear JD Salinas MS Family,

Welcome to our Juan de Dios Salinas Middle School website! At JD we embrace the commitment to continuous improvement, collaboration, and passion of our students- through academics, fine arts and athletics departments.

We are a group of experienced, devoted, and determined individuals who have made a commitment to a phenomenal group of students. We accept this labor of love and instill in our students that our challenges do not define us rather, they empower us.

We are strong. We are united.  #WEAREJD
