Shaker Jr. High photoWelcome to

Shaker Jr. High School

Your child will be provided the opportunities to grow academically, socially, physically and emotionally during the two years spent in our school. Students are assigned to one of our four Halls: Houston, Clay, Norris, or Calhoun, for the entire time spent here. Our teaching staff will help prepare your child well for high school.

Student access to SJHS begins at 6:45 a.m. Homeroom begins at 7:34 a.m. and the nine 40 minute class periods run from 7:45 a.m. to 2:17 p.m. Dismissal is at 2:17 p.m.; late buses leave from the high school at 3:50 p.m. for those students who remain after school for a legitimate purpose.
