About Preston Junior High

Built in 1997 to replace Jefferson Middle School, Preston Junior High is home to around 600 students in 6th through 8th grade. We pride ourselves on our students' outstanding academic achievements, and attribute that success to high parent involvement, exceptional staff, and students who push themselves both inside and outside the classroom.
