Principal's Message

My name is Dr. Kyle Loudermilk and I am excited to start my 9th year in administration with Kingsport City Schools and my first year as Principal at John Sevier Middle School!  Before being named as principal at JSMS, I served as principal at Jackson Elementary and as an associate/assistant principal at both the elementary and middle school levels.  I am excited to work alongside the passionate and dedicated staff at John Sevier Middle School as we help each and every student achieve their personal best. 

John Sevier Middle School has an enrollment of approximately 750 students in grades 6-8. Our faculty and staff consist of 100 adults who have made it their mission to support students and have a daily positive impact on student lives. We have three teachers per content area in each grade level and offer advanced math courses including Algebra and Geometry.

At John Sevier Middle School, we are committed to teaching and supporting the whole child.  Through the Community Eligibility Provision program from the US Department of Agriculture, all students at John Sevier Middle School receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at no cost!  Sevier students have access to a variety of courses and extracurricular activities in the areas of fine arts, coding, robotics, and athletics.  Additionally, students have access to two school counselors, a Camelot therapist, and a Frontier Health counselor. Sevier is proud to be home to a nationally recognized school newspaper, The Sequoyah Scribe. Students may also choose to participate in other leadership programs including Student Council, Natural Helpers, or Student Ambassadors. 

Sevier families play an integral role in the education of their children. Our students and families are supported by our family liaison, Robin Kerkhoff, who plans family engagement events both at school and within our community. We also encourage families to become involved in our active and supportive PTA.
