Although Mayde Creek Junior is actually the oldest member of the Mayde Creek complex, we have recently reonvated. Featuring extra-large science labs and art rooms, additional classrooms, and a fully remodeled library, Mayde Creek Junior High welcomes students, parents and visitors with a warm, inviting, and modern facility staffed by exceptional educators and professionals.
MCJH provides fulfilling and challenging educational opportunities designed to develop each student’s individual abilities intellectually, physically and socially through engaging, authentic learning activities utilizing collaboration, technology, problem solving, and critical thinking. Our science classes emphasize labs and hands on exploration; our math classes employ manipulatives to develop math reasoning skills. Our English Language Arts classes feature reader/writer workshops and our social studies classes incorporate state of the art technology which allows students to interact with the content they are studying.
In addition to a rigorous academic core curriculum, students at MCJH may choose to participate in band, orchestra, choir, theatre arts, career and technology programs, robotics, pentathlon, journalism programs, and of course, athletics. All Mayde Creek JH Gators are involved in clubs of their choice every Friday.
Mayde Creek Junior High is composed of a diverse community of faculty and students. The curriculum includes programs designed to meet the needs of all of learners, including thriving communities of PreAP, GT, and ESOL learners. The social, academic, and emotional needs of our special needs population are meet by an outstanding faculty of specially trained educators and paraprofessionals.
Parent volunteers are an active part of MCJH’s various school activities and campus life. Volunteers log nearly 20,000 hours per year working in the library, front office, and counselors’ office, serving as language interpreters, assisting in school fundraisers and chaperoning student trips. The PTA sponsors numerous teacher support activities, community nights and special events for students.
