I am very excited for this upcoming school year! Following up on what was a very successful merger of our two Junior High programs, we at Heritage Junior High can’t wait to build on this past year’s success. Our team has been hard at work in planning and preparing for this upcoming school year. Thank you again for exercising your right in educational choice, and choosing Heritage Junior High School (HJHS). We continue to be so grateful and honored that you have once again entrusted us with your student(s).

HJHS is entering its second year this August. Established as a program within the Heritage K-8 charter, HJHS will have a student body of 300 students. We are proud to continue the rich traditions of American Heritage Charter Schools where our parents, students, and faculty have remained committed to improving student learning, imparting important American values that will help students become effective citizens and leaders, preparing every child for success in high school, and fostering a culture of academic excellence on and off campus.

It is always our goal to provide an environment that is both safe and academically rigorous. I truly believe that HJHS is the best Junior High School you could have chosen! In order to remain at the top, our teaching staff has reflected on the previous year and seeking on ways to improve. As an organization, we have increased our security supervision, fencing, and safety procedures, in fulfilling our promise to you to continue to make our campus a safe place for learning.
