MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL
PAM SURPRENANT

Hufford Junior High School is the largest school in District 86 with approximately 1,100 students. We offer educational experiences to sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students. Hufford Jr. High School also has a magnet school component, the Individual Education School, with a focus on the 4 R’s: Respect, Responsibility, Resourcefulness, and Responsiveness. In addition to our General Education Programs, we accommodate student needs through a continuum of Special Education Programs taught in an inclusion setting. Additionally, we use a prescriptive approach to meet the individual needs of students through our Response to Intervention Initiative (RtI).

Core subjects include Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Science. Art, Music, Speech, Technology Lab, Math Lab, Character Education, Health, and PE compliment the core subjects. Accelerated classes are offered at every grade level to maximize opportunities for all students. Our Band, Orchestra, and Choir Programs are among the finest in Illinois and are a source of pride for our Hufford Jr. High School Community.

After-school programs offer both athletic and academic opportunities as well as enrichment activities. The Sports Program includes Girls and Boys Cross Country; Girls and Boys Basketball; Boys Wrestling; Girls Volleyball; and Girls and Boys Soccer. Tutoring, Scholastic Bowl, Fan Club, Chess Club, Art Club, Student Council, National Junior Honor Society, and Builders Club are just a few of the activities offered to our students to help them grow and become strong independent thinkers ready for the future.
