Big picture

Current 8th grade students are beginning the process of registering for high school classes for the 2021-2022 school year!

The process for parents starts with the 8th Grade Parents' Night Presentation on Thursday, February 25th at 6 pm in the Columbus High School auditorium. Counselors will be there to discuss graduation requirements, earning credits, and the scheduling process. Students will receive the course selection worksheet and a blank four-year plan for individual planning meetings.


Starting March 4th, counselors will be at Columbus Junior High School to meet with 8th grade students. Parents may attend this meeting with their student to help them complete their registration and develop their four-year graduation plan.


All 8th grade students should be bringing home a schedule that lists the individual planning meeting times. If you have any questions, please contact Mikel Luna, CJHS counselor, at (979) 732 - 2891.

CJHS Accelerated Reader Program

Beginning with the 4th six weeks, all students will earn a TEST GRADE with their AR points. This test grade will be in addition to the other tests already taken in their ELA class. More information about the AR requirments will be distributed by the ELA teachers. Parents can help by encouraging their student to READ EVERYDAY!

Students can earn CARDINAL CARDS for Perfect Attendance!

Students who have perfect attendance during the 4th and 5th six weeks will receive a white card. Perfect attendance white cards will count towards the end of the year field trip/outdoor activity day in May!
