The Cougar Team recognizes the importance of experiencing the transition from an elementary setting to a more independent junior high environment. We help each student navigate his or her way throughout the school year--starting when students are learning their new schedules and room assignments, locker combinations, and academic expectations. We then strive to nurture each student's development into becoming a self-directed learner, quality producer, complex thinker, collaborative worker and community contributor, all components of District 203’s mission statement. We know the importance of communication between students, parents, support staff, and teachers in order to have a successful school year. We provide a secure, safe environment for all Cougar students to grow. Plus, we have fun along the way!
