Jones Middle School is one of two middle schools in the Upper Arlington City School District, in Upper Arlington, Ohio.[1] The school is located in the center of the Upper Arlington Historic District, at the end of the Mallway.

Building and history[edit]

The site that is now Jones Middle School previously served as Camp Willis, a military training camp during World War I. This is noted by a plaque near the Arlington Avenue side of the site.

The neo-classical school building was designed by Ohio Stadium architect Howard Dwight Smith and completed in 1924.[2] It served as the first permanent school in Upper Arlington, serving grades 1-6; grades 7-12 were added to the building following its 1926 expansion. The building was renamed Upper Arlington High School in 1939 with the opening of another Smith-designed school, Barrington Road Elementary School.

Jones Middle School became an International Baccalaureate World School in November 2012.[3]

Notable alumni[edit]

  • Jack Nicklaus (b. 1940), professional golfer widely regarded as the best of all time, winning a total of 18 career major championships
  • Abby Johnston (b. 1989), olympic athlete who won a silver medal in the Women's synchronized 3 metre springboard at the 2012 Summer Olympics
