About Our School
The Bennie Dover Jackson Multi-Magnet Middle School Campus showcases two distinct magnet pathways: STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and International Education. Students in grades 6-8 from all Connecticut cities and towns are eligible to attend.
To educate and graduate students who specialize in one of our themed magnet pathways, who are well-versed in the academic knowledge and practical experiences necessary to success in high school and beyond; who are critical thinkers and innovators; who are courageous and self-reliant; and who challenge the status quo while enriching their community, country, and global society.
Students will have several magnet-themed opportunities and experiences, including Oceanography, Lego Robotics, Coding, Artificial Intelligence, Project Lead the Way, and soon-to-be-added Design and Makerspace for STEM. For International Education, students will be able to participate in Latinos in Action, World Language, Debate, and more.
We are nearing the completion of our construction project, which will allow us to provide world-class facilities to our students and staff. The new and improved BDJ will provide students with an enriching and incredible middle school experience.
