A Word from the Principal

Thank you for your interest in Morrison Junior High School. We provide quality education to some 300 students in sixth, seventh and eighth grades.

The experienced and dedicated staff works hard to make our school an inviting place where all students are welcome. The environment encourages feelings of confidence and self-worth. Our students are encouraged to respect others and value their community.

Our curriculum, which is carefully aligned with state standards, has been designed to promote the social, intellectual and physical well-being of our students. We place a strong emphasis on engaged learning that helps our students acquire academic skills that will give them a solid foundation in high school and beyond. In addition to the core subjects of science, math, social studies, reading and English, we offer enrichment programs in art, music, computers, health, and physical education. State of the art technology augments our instructional programs. Our building is completely networked, and there is Internet access in each classroom. In addition, most rooms have large screen television monitors and VCRs. We also have a multi-media computer lab.

Scores from recent standardized testing including the ISAT (Illinois Standards Achievement Testing) for sixth, seventh and eighth graders demonstrate strong academic performance by our students. Our goal, however, is continuous improvement of student performance. We hope to cultivate self-motivated, lifelong learners.

Classroom instruction is not the only way for students to develop and learn. MJHS offers extra curricular activities designed to promote student growth. Jazz band, concert band, music festival, two choruses and quiz bowl competition provide students with opportunities for intellectual and aesthetic expression. We also provide a wide range of athletic opportunities for both boys and girls including volleyball, basketball, wrestling, track, and swimming.

The junior high school is an integral part of the Morrison community and we welcome parent involvement and seek community support. For more information about Morrison Junior High School, please call us at 815/772-7264.
