Message from the Principal

Hello, and welcome to South Jordan Middle School, the Home of the Snow Leopards.  SOJO (South Jordan) is a unique school with a wonderful community and supportive parents.  Our students are highly motivated and highly skilled in academics.  They are also highly involved with after school activities in the community.  This enables our students to be highly rounded individuals who are well behaved and thrive on rigorous expectations.  SOJO has a strong tradition of academic excellence; at the top or near the top of the testing spectrum for standardized tests.  We enjoy our partnership BYU Idaho and SOJO teachers love to collaboratively mentor and train student teachers.  Education is a fulfilling occupation.  We love our students and strive to lead them to excellence.  Come and experience the SOJO Way.

About the School

While all good stories have a beginning, middle and end, the story of Jordan School District is still being written. As our next chapter unfolds, our founding principles of providing a quality education and promoting lifelong learning will guide our future.

Jordan School District will continue to lead the way in research-based curriculum and strategies. We believe education must be relevant and responsive to the ever-changing world.

How we educate our students is perhaps our greatest accomplishment. Quality teaching promotes quality learning. That is evident in our students who continually outperform their counterparts across the nation on standardized tests.

We inspire future generations one student at a time. Our strength lies in the hearts and talents of our employees. The teachers, support staff and administrators have developed a synergy that has fueled Jordan's legacy of serving and educating students for more than a century. As students leave our system we hope they are inspired to continue learning for a lifetime.

Established in 1905, Jordan School District opened its doors with 3,000 students, 70 teachers and 20 community schools. We provide public education for more than 49,000 students living in Bluffdale, Copperton, Herriman, Riverton, South Jordan and West Jordan who attend our 52 schools.

Jordan School District is under the leadership of a seven-member Board of Education and District Administration.
