• We, the faculty of HARTSELLE JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL, believe the purpose of HJHS is to serve our students by providing a safe learning environment with meaningful learning opportunities that are grounded in best practices and based on the Alabama College and Career Ready Standards. Hartselle Junior High strives to teach students the skills needed to be 21st Century Learners by creating opportunities for students to authentically engage with technology. HJHS students are also provided leadership opportunities through our 7 Habits program and RTI is addressed during Tiger Pride and gifted classes.


    The faculty strives to develop an individual who has an open mind, a respect for himself and others, a willingness to examine all sides of a question, and a desire to use the democratic process in settling problems. In encouraging the development of the individual, we strive to meet his basic needs including love, acceptance, security, protection, independence, faith, guidance, and control.


    We recognize the worth and individuality of each student and accept the fact that each is valuable and should be accepted for what he can contribute.


    We seek to provide a desirable balance among activities designed to enhance the cognitive, affective, and psychomotor domains.
