Help Us Open Up
Much Needed Space at Jacques
  • When Milford brought on full-day Kindergarten in 2018, JMS began to crowd and since then enrollment has increased overcrowding JMS further.
  • In 2020, Preschool was relocated to Heron Pond as a temporary solution due to space constraints.
  • JMS gym is currently a multi-purpose space - cafeteria, gymnasium, and
    auditorium/event space.
  • Using the BALES gymnasium opens up space at JMS for greater flexibility of space.
  • Creating three classroom spaces for JMS on the lower level of BALES opens classrooms at JMS to bring PRESCHOOL back.
  • Art, Music, Physical Ed., and Library (Unified Arts classes) will take place once a week at BALES.
