My Educational Philosophy
I believe that every single student has the potential to be successful, and we help them reach that potential. Essential to the success of our students is a strong, collaborative, and respectful relationship between the school and home. Also critical to the success of our students is a school environment that embraces and respects the diversity of our community while maintaining high expectations for student achievement.
The Choice is Yours! Why Choose AJHS?
AJHS strives to ensure rigorous core academics while exposing students to a wide variety of electives to provide a challenging, yet enjoyable experience. To complement our MYP-IB world view, we offer a diverse selection of elective classes including: Mandarin Chinese, French, Spanish, practical arts, fine arts, athletic physical education, and regular physical education. New elective choices we are excited to offer at AJHS are AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) and PLTW (Project Lead the Way). AJHS is also proud to offer a full range of competitive sports, clubs, and after-school tutoring as another integral part of the junior high school experience. Thank you for making Andersen Junior High School your school of choice!
