QJH Principal Bill Russell explained goals for Quitman Junior High.  “Our realistic, long-term goal is to fast-track learning recovery. We plan to do that in two years instead of the three to five years that experts predict. The key is working with students with high expectations for everyone – students, teachers, and administration.”

Dr. Goff added that, “our mission is to come back better than ever.”  Academic instruction at QJH will continue to strive for greatness.

QJH is preparing for success! Quitman Junior High hosted a career fair for the 8th grade recently. Students enjoyed circulating among tables with representatives from the CTC, various colleges, employers, law enforcement, fire fighting, district nurses, and the NAACP. Questions were asked and answered. Eighth grade students went back to class with a clear picture of careers in their area. Students were also treated to coaching and mentoring from speaker Judge Tobey Bartee and WTOK media professionals.
