District 140 7th & 8th grade band (Concert and Symphonic) members who are interested in performing jazz music may join this band. In addition to jazz, this group also learns to play in swing, Latin, and rock styles.

The Jazz Band performs at concerts, festivals, and various special events. The Jazz Band rehearses once a week, after school at Prairie View.  

Depending on the number of students enrolled this year, there may be two jazz bands.
