Leadership & Success Opportunities

Success is not a happy accident—it takes careful planning and preparation. At Show Low JH, we desire to help every student RISE by developing goals and mapping a path to turn those goals into reality. With the help of our community partners, we proudly offer our students a variety of leadership and success classes to start them on the road to success.

Arizona Youth Partnership

Our partnership with AZYP provides students with an interactive program, Choosing the Best Way/Path/Life, about healthy relationships and good decision making that is both research based and fun. We offer these classes as part of our health and PE curriculum.


Each month, SLJHS will fully embrace the given character trait of the month. We will integrate themes into curriculum and student activities. At the end of the month, teachers will nominate the students who best demonstrate the character trait to attend a special lunch arranged with the principal and sponsored by the Pizza Factory.

The traits are:

  • August - responsibility

  • September - respect

  • October - integrity

  • November - service

  • December - caring

  • January - fairness

  • February - leadership

  • March - understanding

  • April - excellence

  • May - inspire
