SJB Junior High 6-8
Our junior high classes are departmentalized with educators who specialize in their content areas and advocate for every student to ensure success. We have a 1:1 iPad curriculum, which fosters student engagement, individualized instructions, and accountability. This partnered with a focus on Responsive Classroom strategies and collaborative group work creates confident, self-assured learners.
Our junior high mathematicians begin with transitional math and move through pre-algebra, algebra and geometry. Science encourages students to become critical thinkers who understand and respect the responsibility that comes with scientific knowledge. ELA integrates research and writers workshops with novel study to create an integrated understanding and love of great literature. Social Studies begins with an overview of world cultures and an intense two-year exploration of U.S. history.
Our junior high students graduate from St John Berchmans with a great confidence in their academic abilities and social emotional learning ensuring their success in Chicago’s premier Catholic and public high schools.
