Greetings Panthers!

 

Welcome to Ashdown Junior High School, home of the Panthers! At AJHS our mission is to create an environment of excellence in which students will be successful academically. Our school staff is committed to helping each student reach their individual potential during their middle school journey.

 

At AJHS all staff and students work together to create the A-Team. Following the middle school philosophy of teaming, all students in a grade level will share the same team of core teachers for science, social studies, math, and English. This structure allows a team of four teachers to work together to provide a high-quality learning experience for each student.

 

Middle school students’ social-emotional well being is supported at AJHS through a daily Advisory program. Students work in small groups with a mentor teacher throughout the year to learn citizenship, character, leadership, and organization skills that are crucial to their personal development. Additionally, students’ academic success is supported through weekly RTI (Response To Intervention) sessions. During RTI, students work closely with their Advisory teacher to improve areas of academic weakness. This personalized instruction ensures that all students are meeting personal academic goals in reading and math.

 

During the 2020-2021 school year, AJHS students will have the special opportunity to apply core academic skills in the STEAM lab. Previously known as the PIT, the STEAM lab will be available to students completing class projects and STEAM challenges. Makerspace and robotics activities will allow students to work together to gain a deeper understanding of academic objectives.

 

Let’s stay connected! Please join the Ashdown Junior High Facebook page for the most current information. This page will highlight student activities, events, and celebrations. Parents are also encouraged to subscribe to a free text message program, Remind. Remind will be used for parent notifications of school events, closures, and reminders.

Go Panthers! Felicia Horn
