Although Mayde Creek Junior is the oldest member of the Mayde Creek complex, it was renovated six years ago. 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 student-centered labs, inquiry-based instruction, 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, Academic Pentathlon, Destination Imagination, Science Olympiad, Yearbook, National Juniro Honor Society, and of course, athletics.
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 Pre-AP, 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 always welcome to participate in MCJH’s various school activities and campus life. This year we have KEYS mentors on campus volunteering. We also have an active PTA that is always looking for dedicated parents/family members who want to help out and contribute to our great school. Volunteers log nearly 20,000 hours per year working in the library, front office, and counselors’ office, assisting in school fundraisers and chaperoning student trips. The PTA sponsors numerous teacher support activities, community nights and special events for students.
All of this has factored to the success of Mayde Creek Junior High!
