Degrees and Certifications:

Dr. Trent Vernon, Principal

I am so excited to begin another school year at Jamestown Middle School. Our school is home to the best staff, students, teachers, and parents in Guilford County. I am honored to serve as principal of this phenomenal school. I am from High Point and began my career as a middle school teacher in South Carolina and later Welborn Middle School. I also served as an assistant principal at Mendenhall Middle in Greensboro before serving as the principal of Johnson Street Global Studies K-8 Magnet school in High Point for several years.


I have a beautiful wife of 21 years, April, and three awesome children, Jude (16), Kate (14), and Ava (11). I love the outdoors and am an avid Tar Heels, Yankees and Panthers fan.


JMS enjoys a stellar reputation for having quality teachers, a caring community, and high academic standards. I believe that this year can be the best yet. We look forward to seeing you all as we work together to create an environment that meets the needs of all our students!
