Dear Johnnie Carr Middle School Students, Parents and Guardians:

We Did It!!! Congratulations to our supportive parents, gifted students, and outstanding faculty and staff for helping Johnnie Carr Middle School attain full authorization as an official International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. Carr offers the only IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) in the district and was able to pursue acceptance into this prestigious organization with the sustained support of Superintendent Allen and the Board members.

Although the journey to achieving authorization was rigorous, the work has truly just begun. As an IB school, the bar has been raised, and the expectations are even higher for all stakeholders. Our goal is to develop the “whole” child – mind, body, and soul, and we believe it is our job to equip students to compete in a global society and make a positive impact on their communities. For further information about IB and its programmes, visit Thank you again for your support and partnership in achieving this distinct honor.

John M. Johnston


Thank you for helping us meet our goal with the Heifer Project!!! Visit to see how much $$ we’ve raised. Our 6th grade Pre-AP students lifted up those in need by donating to the Heifer Project and starting a cycle of positive change. Heifer's cornerstones have empowered people to change their lives. The giving spirit grows exponentially with each person it impacts.

Please congratulate all of the Spanish club members and teachers for dominating the Spanish competition in Tuscaloosa. Ms. Hidalgo...

Please congratulate Johnnie Carr students who were recognized among other Montgomery County students for their Reflections...
