Curriculum

Jimtown Junior High School strives to instill  a joy for learning, to celebrate creativity, and to support each and every student in attaining his or her fullest personal and academic growth. Our teachers are extremely talented in their respective disciplines and we are committed to making Jimtown Junior High School an enriching learning environment.  Middle School is a time of tremendous growth and change – intellectually, emotionally, physically, and socially. Jimtown Junior High School provides opportunities for every student to maximize their individual strengths and develop a sense of self-worth that lasts a lifetime.

Within a traditional liberal arts curriculum, students are challenged to embrace new ideas, listen carefully to others, and develop critical thinking skills in their journey toward independence.  All members of the community—including students, parents, faculty and staff—contribute to the spirit of the school. We contribute by acting with integrity and respect for individual differences, by treating others and the environment with care and concern, and by cooperating as well as competing. All assume responsibility for learning by participating in the life of the school, by valuing the accomplishments of self and others, and by striving to excel in all things. Open and honest communication between parents, faculty, and staff is vital to the work we do here at Jimtown Junior High and we encourage parents to call anytime with a question, concern, or suggestion for improving our efforts on behalf of our students.
