Our proud tradition of excellence and success in academics, athletics, and the arts is second to none. Across the curriculum, our faculty and staff have committed themselves to a school-wide goal of helping our students excel in mathematics, reading, and writing. We invite all parents to become actively involved in our Parent Teacher Resource Organization. We want to continue the success of parents and teachers working together in partnership to benefit our students.
Greetings Tiger Families,
Welcome to Gilbert Junior High School home of the Tigers!
My name is Sam Valles and
I am honored to be the new principal here at
Gilbert Junior! I am very excited for the
start of the 2016-17 school year.
We are proud of our tradition and success at Gilbert Junior.
Our teachers and staff members are dedicated to helping all students to be
successful and enjoy learning. We will work hard to provide students the
foundation to reach their academic goals and to set the standard for other
schools to follow. Gilbert Junior is special place to learn and grow!
The GJHS staff is passionate and sincere in their work by supporting
students in all facets of their learning. Additionally, we would like to
invite our students to be actively involved in school with our clubs and
sports opportunities. With our combined efforts between school and
home our goal is to build a successful experience for your child.
We want to make sure you are informed of what is going on at our school.
A communication link between school and home is vital in support
of our mission. Therefore, I will make every effort to keep you informed
of school happenings through our school website, infinite campus, and
school messenger. Additionally, you will also find a link to our school
Facebook and Twitter accounts on our school web page.
