Sheridan Junior High School
At Sheridan Junior High School (SJHS), we value growth, achievement and citizenship through a supportive environment. These values lie at the heart of everything we do, and guide our fundamental purpose: to ensure that every one of our students learn.
Having strong values and purpose gives clarity and direction to SJHS, while allowing us to set new year-to-year goals based on student needs and past performance in academics, assessment and other areas of student support.
SJHS is proud of our programming and outstanding community/parent involvement. Support for students begins at the classroom level with teachers providing individual guidance for students requiring additional help, and expands to school-wide programs such as tutoring, responsibility interventions and a variety of special education services. Fostering parent communication is always an improvement goal, and our teachers make frequent contact with parents to grow our communication and engagement.
