Excellence in Junior High
Whitko's Jr High is the second stage of a child's journey following elementary education, and prepares students to become young adults ready to engage at the High School level. This transition is made easier with a combined Jr/Sr High. As a result, some opportunities are made more readily available to Jr High students of Whitko because of their proximity and natural overlap, an example of this is allowing Jr High students to participate in extracurriculars like marching band.
At Whitko Middle School, at our core, we want students to embody the acronym R.O.A.R.
RESPECT - Exhibit concern for students, staff, and school
ON TASK - Work hard and stay focused
ADVOCACY - Stand up for yourself and others
RESPONSIBILITY - Do what you are supposed to do, when you are supposed to do it
