About John Poole 

John Poole Middle School (JPMS) is a small middle school in the Montgomery County Public School System and is located in Poolesville, Maryland.  JPMS opened in 1997, and in August 2001 we proudly dedicated our new addition, the Linda Fiore Memorial Gymnasium.  JPMS is part of the Poolesville Cluster receiving students from both Poolesville and Monocacy Elementary Schools and sending our students to Poolesville High School.
