Open Quote As are most parents, we were nervous going into junior high in a large town. Our experience has far exceeded our expectations at Young Junior High. The autonomy students are encouraged to develop through advanced learning, a myriad of clubs, a sincere staff and athletic programs, places this junior high among the best in Arlington -- public or private. I feel like my child is very well prepared for high school success both socially and academically. Close Quote

Open Quote I have 2 children at Young Junior High. I love this school! Both of my children are having a great experience. They are both thriving academically, involved in the fine arts (orchestra, band and theatre) and participate on athletic teams. Great school! Close Quote

Open Quote We’re having a wonderful experience at Young JH! My student is an 8th grader now and has learned to be more independent and responsible thanks to the teachers and administrators at Young. She is being challenged and taught to think critically without being overly burdened with homework (about 30 minutes to 1 hour per night with only occasional exceptions), and there is a great variety of high-quality extracurricular activities and clubs. The administration has been very receptive to questions and feedback, and the principal is very dedicated. I highly recommend this school! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
