About BJH

Bayless Junior High School is dedicated to the intellectual, physical, social and emotional development of students during the transition from childhood to adolescence. We recognize the uniqueness of these students and strive to provide programs that are centered on their needs.

A core of academic courses complemented by a program of exploratory activities is essential. These courses and programs are primarily designed to allow active participation and result in positive educational experiences.

Bayless Junior High School believes that a positive educational climate that is conducive to the needs of the early adolescent will provide a transition between the self-contained elementary and the departmentalized high school. This is a place for each child to grow as a person while learning responsibility and consideration for him/herself and others.

Education is a lifelong process, and we are committed to helping children develop learning skills as well as teaching them to adapt to change. At Bayless Junior High School, we value the learner as well as what is to be learned.

“Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Kind:” are the Bayless Junior High School core values. Conscientious practice and living by the Bayless Junior High Touchstone produce students who have an intrinsic desire to be smart, good, and strong.
