I challenge you to find a school with a population of 800 students or fewer that will have more to offer students than Hagerstown Junior Senior High School offers its students. Our academic and extra-curricular offerings are comprehensive. We offer 13 dual credit (college credit) courses in-house and have had students take specific college course work on-line during the school day. We offer all IHSAA sports with the exception of soccer. Our modern and well maintained facilities allow us to host more major athletic events than any other county school in the area. Our student and teacher access to technology is excellent. We have nine computer labs throughout the building making more than two hundred and fifty internet-connected computers available for our students. Our students are provided an education which emphasizes rigor, relevance, and relationships. We provide our students with before, after, and in-school opportunities for extra help. Our community is committed to its schools. As an active member in the Communities in Schools of Wayne County, we are able to have a school coordinator who works with parents, school patrons, business, and other youth organizations to find and connect the resources necessary to provide each student with a comprehensive educational experience. Two members of our teaching staff have been selected, in different years, as among the top ten teachers in Indiana as determined by the Indiana Department of Education Teacher of the Year Committee. In the spring of 2010 our seniors participated in the National High Schools That Work Senior Assessment. This assessment measures students' skills in reading, math, and science. Our school was identified as one of thirty “Pacesetter” schools from more than 940 schools that participated in this assessment. We are most proud of our students. Our student body is focused, determined, respectful, and courteous to one another and to adults.
If you are looking for the best educational fit for your son or daughter, please come and visit. After you talk to our students, teachers, parents and alumni, I feel certain that your decision will be made, and like me you will say, "It is great to be a Hagerstown Tiger!"
