JWMS IDEAS Center

The IDEAS Center is an after-school homework program held in the John Witherspoon Learning Commons.  It is open to all students in the Middle School who want a quiet place to do homework and receive academic assistance.  Students have use of computers for research and word processing, as well as most of the school’s textbooks.  The Center is open from 3:00 – 4:00 pm Monday through Thursday. There are two certified teachers in the Center at all times.  To attend, students are required to fill out a registration form that can be downloaded from this site, or found in the JWMS main office, guidance counselors, homeroom teachers, or in the IDEAS Center in the Learning Commons.  Daily attendance is taken by staff.  Students may select the days they attend the Center.


Building Bridges

The Building Bridges program is a Princeton High School student tutoring program.  High school students wishing to fulfill their community service requirement by helping their middle school peers can sign up at PHS.  They are paired with a JW student requesting an individual tutor.  Building Bridges leaders manage and coordinate the tutor-tutee relationship.  They meet during the IDEAS Center in the same location.  Most days there are “floating” tutors who are available to help any student attending the IDEAS Center.  Anyone interested in setting up an individual tutoring session should fill out a Building Bridges form and hand it in to the main office at JWMS.  The Building Bridges form can be downloaded from this site or found in the JWMS main office, with guidance counselors, homeroom teachers, and in the IDEAS Center in the Learning Commons.
