Welcome to Old Town Middle School:
We are located in Ridgeland, Mississippi, which is a suburb of Jackson, Mississippi. Our school was built in 1996 in which it was used for as an upper elementary and a middle school. Since the opening of Highland Elementary School, we now have only grades sixth thru eighth in our building. Our current enrollment is 720 students in grades six through eight. For several years, we have received a “B” rating by the Mississippi Department of Education. Our students also excel in a number of extra-curricular activities, including mathematics, music, arts, and athletics.
