Junior High

Our two junior highs provide students with a globally relevant and enriched education.

Welcome to the exceptional middle-level education our Hopkins junior high schools offer. Both Hopkins North Junior High and West Junior High are International Baccalaureate World Schools, as well as nationally recognized as schools of academic excellence. At our junior high schools, you will find caring and dedicated teachers committed to the unique intellectual, physical, social, and emotional development of your 7th-9th grader.

International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program 

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Program (MYP) is the framework the junior highs use to deliver curriculum. It's a fully inclusive, school-wide, international education model that provides students with the tools needed to be global citizens.
