A Message From The Principal

Welcome to Morrison Junior High School. Morrison Junior High School is currently home to some 240 students in sixth, seventh and eighth grades.

Our faculty and staff works hard to make our school an inviting place where all students are welcome. The environment encourages feelings of confidence and self-worth. Our students are encouraged to respect others and value their community.

Our curriculum is continually being updated to ensure the best possible education for our students. Our subject areas are aligned with the Illinois Learning Standards (Common Core), and have been designed to promote the social, intellectual and physical well-being of our students. We place a strong emphasis on engaged learning that helps our students acquire academic skills that will give them a solid foundation in high school and beyond. In addition to the core subjects of Science, Math, Social Studies, Reading and English, we offer enrichment programs in Art, Music, Band, Computers, Health, and Physical Education. In addition to these areas, we also provide weekly social/emotional education for our students including but not limited to: bullying, internet safety and use, conflict resolution, coping strategies, and teamwork.

Morrison Junior High is at the forefront of technology in the classroom. All students have chromebooks issued to the classrooms for use whenever needed. Classrooms utilize other technologies such as projectors, smartboards, laptop and desktop computers and document cameras. The building has high speed internet which includes seamless wi-fi throughout the building.

Our goal is continuous improvement of student performance in all areas of the day. Through this, we hope to cultivate self-motivated, lifelong learners.

MJHS offers extra curricular activities designed to promote student growth. Jazz band, concert band, music festivals, chorus and quiz bowl competition provide students with opportunities for intellectual and aesthetic expression. We also provide a wide range of athletic opportunities for both boys and girls including volleyball, basketball, cheerleading wrestling, track and field, and swimming.

The junior high school is an integral part of the Morrison community and we welcome parent involvement and seek community support. For more information about Morrison Junior High School, please call us at 815-772-7264 or email at joe.robbins@morrisonschools.org .

Joseph Robbins, Principal, Morrison Junior High School
