Our History

Opening in 1965, J.J. Daniell Middle School is named for Judge James Jordan Daniell (1877-1973), a Cobb County Commissioner who taught in a one-room schoolhouse before the turn of the century. Judge Jordan was instrumental in bringing development to Cobb County during the post-depression era and for instilling a cohesive sense of community pride. This strong community tradition is evident today. Following his lead, J.J. Daniell Middle School continues to promote an appreciation for the roots of hometown life while preparing its students to branch out into the larger world. We are a family. Many of our parents and teachers attended middle school at J.J. Daniell and have remained in this area to see their children attend the same school. Today we are a "Georgia School of Excellence" that serves approximately 1,000 students in the 6, 7, and 8 grades. Year after year, our students have consistently demonstrated their ability to receive a strong academic education preparing them for high school success. Our student body feeds into Sprayberry High School, one of the top ranked high schools in the United States and the metropolitan Atlanta area according to US News and World Report.
