WELCOME

Welcome to the Cortland Junior High School. The purpose of Cortland Junior High School is to foster a community of positivity, self reliance, and love of learning for all. There are two components that are essential to success in the Junior High School: Communication and Teamwork. I encourage everyone to communicate. Students need to communicate with each other, teachers, staff, parents and administration. Parents need to communicate with each other, teachers, staff, students and administration. Teachers and administration must communicate with these same groups as well. If everyone communicates, we will establish the second necessary component for success: Teamwork. 

Once again, we are in this together. All of us need to work together in the best interest of our children. Communication and teamwork are essential, and if there is anything anyone at Cortland Junior-Senior High School can do to help your children or you, please give us a call.
