Principal's Message


My name is James Burnett. I am excited and honored to serve the Putnam City district as principal of James L. Capps Middle School. Over the past 18 years I have worked as a teacher and administrator in public education. I believe that we are here to help each student grow, learn, and make a positive impact on those around them. Throughout their middle school years, students are growing socially, emotionally, academically, and in so many other ways. We have a phenomenal group of teachers, coaches and staff that are dedicated to help your students grow in each of these areas and to be successful.

It is our goal to be an innovative learning environment by engaging students with purposeful and meaningful learning opportunities.

If you have any questions about opportunities for your student(s) please reach out to us.

I encourage you to communicate with our staff whenever there are questions, concerns, or ideas. Please make sure you have access to the parent portal and check our website and calendar.  We look forward to working with you and alongside you this year!
