August 2015 Info for MJHS
Welcome to Meridian Junior High School for the 2015-2016 school year!
We are excited to have students back in our classrooms filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning. It is our mission to educate students to be self-directed learners, collaborative workers, complex thinkers, quality producers and community contributors.
At MJHS we have great teachers who spend hours planning and creating classroom activities to engage our students in learning. MJHS will focus on on the following School Improvement Goals while planning these lessons:
1. The first goal focuses on the students’ writing skills. Over the next two school years (2015-2017) a student’s score on the MJHS Common Writing Rubric will increase by 10% or more when averaged across disciplines.
2. The second goal focuses on setting student learning goals. During the 2015-2016 school year all teachers at Meridian Junior High will write a curriculum smart goal with their students based on pretest data, this goal will improve post-test scores by 51% rule.
