Music

Janitell is one of the premiere middle schools in the region for music programming. While most middle schools offer only a single music program, Janitell offers three full music programs: Orchestra, Band, and Choir, with multiple classes and skill levels taught in each area.

Janitell students are regularly represented in the Pikes Peak Middle School Jazz Band and Concert Band, the Pinnacle Jazz Ensemble, and the District 3 Honor Band. Students received Superior Ratings at the CHSAA Contest 2022.
