About The School
About The School
It is the mission of Donegal Junior High School to provide an exemplary child-centered program to meet the needs of pre-adolescent youth. We offer a variety of programs and support to encourage success in our students. The teachers work together within their content areas to effectively meet the needs of students. The areas of language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, and unified arts (art, technology education, music, computer science, physical education, health, library/media resources and reading) are the major components of the curriculum. As with any educational setting, students need to understand the importance of home and school working together to make learning a priority and that communication between stakeholders is encouraged and expected.
