Our Mission


Turlock Junior High School is about increasing student achievement and preparing students academically and socially in a safe environment through teacher collaboration and effectiveness.


We will . . .

2.  Teach, model, and reinforce the TUSD identified character traits, as well as, develop common discipline procedures which will be implemented effectively throughout the school.

3.  Implement a formalized process to help students set and achieve rigorous personal goals related to academics, character, and potential future careers.

4.  Forge educational partnerships with families and community in order to instill student enthusiasm for learning.
