Greetings 7th grade parents and students. Welcome to the seventh grade webpage and to the Altoona Area Junior High School. We have much to be excited about during this 7th grade year! You and your child are now integral pieces of the junior high experience. There are many exciting opportunities to look forward to this year and with that comes additional responsibility, independence, and expectations. It is very important that teachers, parents, students, and principals form partnerships to prepare students for the challenges of the future.
To help support all in this transitional year, please check this web page frequently for information regarding activities, important dates, and information that will assist you throughout the school year. The seventh grade school year will be a great experience. We wish the best to all!
