Principal's Message

It is both an honor and a privilege to serve as the principal at Jonathan Alder Junior High School!  I am eager to dive into the 20-21 school year which promises to be filled with unique opportunities and situations in and out of the classroom.  At a time when there are so many unknowns in our day to day lives, I'm committed to working towards bringing consistency to the experiences our students have at JAJHS.  
The junior high is a building with a deep history of academic excellence and rich traditions.  The staff is enthusiastic to establish meaningful relationships with students to promote a fun, positive, and dynamic culture for them.  The academic opportunities within the building promote creative thinking and problem solving as our students prepare for their next steps in school.    

Through a vital partnership between teachers and families, we will embrace the challenges of navigating these important developmental years.  Educating students in a physically and emotionally safe environment is a significant charge and one that we are honored to take on at JAJH.  Additionally, our building offers a variety of curricular and extracurricular opportunities for students to explore and develop their unique talents!  

As questions, concerns, or ideas arise, please be sure to address them with the appropriate staff member to ensure that your child’s experience in the building is a positive journey.  We are passionate about our commitment and opportunity to serve your children.

Thank you for your support of our students, staff, school, and community!  Go Pioneers!
