From the Principal's Desk
Welcome to Wallace Junior High!
Wallace Junior High School is a small, rural school with approximately 360 sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students. Our class sizes are average, about 25-30. We follow a seven period schedule. The first 5 classes consist of core and academic classes. Periods six and seven are set aside for re-teach for students needing additional support in math, rigor, and study hall. We also utilize the study hall period for both band and chorus, which allows our students to participate in the fine arts without missing valuable class time. On early-release Fridays, we offer enrichment classes during this final period. Since we do not offer elective courses, the enrichment classes allow the students to participate in “weekly electives”. These classes include, but are not limited to: National Junior Honor Society, Student Council, outdoor sports, yearbook, newspaper, arts and crafts, Earth Science, book studies, classic films and music, gardening, newspaper, and study hall.
During the 2012-2013 school year, Parker Unified School District implemented Beyond Textbooks. Beyond Textbooks encourages teachers to utilize all kinds of information available to them. Moreover, it identifies essential standards for core subject areas. Re-teach and enrichment are key components in student achievement. We are proud to say we earned a B+ for the 2012-2013 school year. We hope to experience continued success for this school year.
