A Message from Principal

Rita Sparks

Gompers Junior High School is the home to approximately 850 students in sixth, seventh, and eighth grades. In addition, we house other educational programs including Bilingual support and a variety of Special Education classes.

While we anticipate challenges, we as a staff are committed to the health, safety, and well being of all members of our Gompers family. Our staff is dedicated to the academic and social emotional growth of your students. We invite you as partners in the education of your students to be a part of this journey. Our aim is to assist all students as we continue to move forward with our Remote Learning. We believe in your students accessing opportunities that are engaging and will allow them to build meaningful relationships with their peers and all of our staff members as they grow academically in the Remote world.

Our staff is on hand to offer extra support daily. Student support hours are as follows:

  • Monday and Tuesday from 1 - 1:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday - Friday from 1 - 2:00 p.m.
  • Students may access links in their Google Classroom.

We encourage you to be active members in your students' education. Please check our communications regularly for important information and updates. If there is anything we can do to support your students and / or your family, please let us know.

We miss our students and families and we look forward to the day we can be together again!
