Welcome to our junior high school. There is a lot of information on our web site to help our community, parents and students become familiar with us. In addition, there are resources that can be helpful to students academically, in seeking financial aide, choosing a college or work after high school and taking advantage of all that our school has to offer.
The Jefferson Area Local School District has spent the past five years developing the capacity to meet the needs of all of its students in the twenty-first century. Our school improvement process is about building the capacity of teachers, administrators, students and their families to engage with the changes taking place within education in Ohio and our nation. New levels of rigor and relevance are being introduced by way of revised standards for science and social studies, the Common Core standards in Mathematics and English Language Arts, new assessments aligned to the standards, an increased reliance on data to drive instructional and structural decisions and new levels of accountability. This is being done to meet Ohio’s goal to have all students graduate with a sense of purpose and well prepared for college, work and life.
