Principal’s Message:

Dear Students and Families:

On behalf of everyone at Jefferson County Junior High School, it gives me great pleasure to officially welcome you to the start of the 2020-2021 school year. Though this current school year has brought about a unique set of challenges, we as Jefferson County School District Tigers have endeavored to meet the moment while “Transforming Together”.

At the Junior High, we have become the Eye of the Tiger- teamwork, innovation, growth, every child, and relationships. We are a school that will work collaboratively with peers for social emotional and academic growth, inspire critical thinking and limitless curiosity, promote ongoing learning, accept diversity and personalized learning experiences, and promote social emotional skills for positive interactions. During these unprecedented times, it is our mandate to teach each student despite our world’s current circumstances. Parents, we extend an open invitation for each of you to work in concert with us and our efforts to provide our students with a premier education, which will serve as a source of pride and creativity ensuring life-long learners who are college and career ready.

We, the faculty and staff of Jefferson County Junior High School again would like to emphasize our excitement at the prospect of a new school year with great challenges and achieving together even greater deeds.
