Our School

Our school, Show Low Junior High, exists to help sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students grow academically, socially, and emotionally in preparation for high school, college, and life beyond.

We Believe

We believe that:

  • All students can succeed.

  • Knowledgeable professionals provide a safe, orderly, and effective learning environment. (And ours are some of the best.)

  • School leadership promotes and sustains continuous school improvement. 

  • Student success increases with family and community involvement. (And we make getting involved easy.)

Our Curriculum

Our curriculum adheres to state standards in all subjects, including the core areas of language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. We also offer elective instruction in the arts, industry, technology, and physical education. 

Show Low Junior High School has a seven period day with each class running for 45 minutes. Passing periods are 4 minutes with a warning bell at 3 minutes. We expect students to be in class, ready, at the warning bell unless there has been prior teacher approval. Lunch will be a series of grade-level rotations, including a 29-minute lunch/recess, 20-minute What I Need (WIN) time, and 20-minute daily math skills. The core subjects of English, math, science, and social studies meet daily all year. Elective/non-core classes meet daily each semester. PE is a required non-core class. The counseling office can provide assistance with scheduling or specific promotion requirements.

Prepare for Success

We want to help all of our students prepare for success here at Show Low Jr. High. Below you will find some additional resources to help you stay up-to-date. The handbook provides information about SLJHS's policies and procedures, including rights and responsibilities, attendance, instruction and learning, promotion and retention, technology use, exceptional student services, athletics, transportation, general guidelines, discipline, and consequences. We invite you to view these documents at your convenience.
