Best Buddies

Best Buddies - We are so excited to announce that the Best Buddies Variety Show is back! We hope that you will bring your family and friends for a night to celebrate the warmth of inclusion and friendship, and to see firsthand the passion that our buddies of all abilities will bring to the stage. Through our adapted version of The Lion King we have a great line up of acts to inspire, make you laugh and perhaps to even bring a few tears to your eyes. The buddies have worked hard to make this night happen so please consider coming out to support their efforts in promoting "abilities awareness".  We want to fill the auditorium but we need your help! The buddies would appreciate if you would spread the word to your students, friends, etc.  A flyer is attached with all the key information.

About Our School

The Stroudsburg Junior High School includes grades 8 and 9.  The facility provides access to several computer labs, Chromebooks, library services, and a student-run media studio for morning announcements.  Science, math, English, history and physical education are required every year.  Advanced and remedial classes in the academic subjects are offered to students who meet specific criteria.  A majority of eighth-grade students receive reading instruction, while qualified eighth-grade students may elect to take a World Language (Spanish, French) and Algebra or Geometry for high school credit instead.  Other curricular offerings for eighth-grade students include career awareness, computer applications, health, and physical education. 


Ninth-grade student course selections allow students to choose from advanced placement, honors, college preparatory, career education, and vocational-technical courses. 

 

A variety of extra-curricular activities are available for the junior high school student to enrich the educational experience.  Junior high school activities may include: Crafts Club, Chamber Orchestra, Show Choir, FBLA, Yearbook, Ski Club, Model UN, Student Council, Spelling Bee, and National Junior Honor Society.   Intramural and team sports include basketball, cross-country, golf, swimming, volleyball, and wrestling.
