Instilling Academic Excellence
In grades seven and eight, our mission is to create truly well rounded students who love to learn. Our curriculum engages students in critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creativity. Our aim is for Judson students to be equipped in problem solving, higher-order thinking and technoolgy/digital literacy.
In addition to the core subjects of math, science, social studies, and language arts, students are exposed to foreign languages, the arts, and daily physical education. Judson also offers electives such as journalism, worship team, student council and teaching assistants.
Today's world requires critical thinkers and problem solvers; thus, Judson's junior high program focuses on propelling our students to a higher level, engaging students in integrated studies that encourage independent thought and application of learning. Judson junior high students are prepared for the high school of their choice.
Our junior high school teachers work together to create cross-curricular learning experiences for our students, bringing lessons to life with meaningful ways in which to learn. Just as each age is unique, so are the goals for each grade level. Our program capitalizes on each grade level's unique qualities, focusing on a global theme that connects learning to essential truths:
Sixth Grade: "The Medieval World"
Seventh Grade: "The Age of Discovery"
Eighth Grade: "The Modern World"
