SFJH Winter


The goal of South Fremont Junior High is to increase student achievement and help prepare students for their futures by focusing on developing their critical thinking and problem solving skills.

The faculty and staff of South Fremont Junior High envision that the process of education shall be designed to prepare students to compete successfully in society as productive citizens.  This process shall consist of many parts, including: current curriculum, effective discipline, safe environment, updated facilities, and increased communication among staff, students, and patrons.

The curriculum shall work toward an effective balance of the basic academic curriculum, vocational technologies and extra-curricular experiences, all with sufficient hands-on, authentic learning opportunities.  The learning model for SFJH will center on the instructional philosophy of “Learning by Doing.”  The condition of facilities (i.e. buildings, classrooms, equipment and supplies) will be continually upgraded and maintained to enhance the learning experience.  

The students shall be able to maximize their potential academically and socially in a positive environment of fairness, equality, and respect.

This vision can be achieved by developing a network of communications which will allow for input and monitoring from the administration, staff, students, and patrons.  This will allow a variety of ways to reward and recognize the work of teachers, students, and patrons in order to establish a high sense of morale and school spirit which will bring about the accomplishment of the vision of South Fremont Junior High.


Make a Difference Campaign

We believe that students can truly make a difference in the lives of others and encourage behaviors that support a proactive approach to developing resilience in our students.  Several years ago, students and teachers at South Fremont Junior High developed a program to help build character and to improve the climate and culture of the school.  These students identified six specific areas that became the foundation of our school’s Make a Difference campaign.  

Has your contact or residency information changed since the 1st day of school? If so, please contact us to update your information so we will be able to reach you in the event of an emergency.

Also, if your student or family is living in a temporary situation as a result of an emergency or for economic reasons, your student may qualify for additional services through the school. Please contact the school at 208 624-7880 for more information.

the 6 components

The following components of the Make a Difference campaign will be incorporated into all aspects of our school experience:

  • Dare to Be Yourself.  “Being yourself” at times is no easy task. However, students who dare to be themselves, step out of the mold.  They dare to be different, they dare to try new things, and they display the confidence to move forward in life and empower others to do the same.
  • Demonstrate Respect.  The Golden Rule is “treat others how you would want to be treated.”  Students who demonstrate respect are doing just that. Showing others respect is a critical component to maintaining positive relationships. Students who demonstrate respect are able to respect others efforts, abilities, opinions and beliefs.
  • Determine School Spirit.  School spirit can often defined as “the feeling of being proud and enthusiastic about the school that you go to.”  School spirit is more than just supporting your school’s athletic teams, going to games and being the loudest person cheering for your team.  Schools unite when they become one. Students who demonstrate school spirit cultivate a sense and feeling of belonging for everyone.
  • Discourage Bullying.  Students who discourage bullying empower others to treat one another with respect.  Students who discourage bullying are also a driving force for kindness. They stand up for their peers and do not tolerate the mistreatment of others.
  • Down to Judging.  We all strive to withhold passing judgment on others.  Students who are down to judging work to connect and understand others rather than becoming angry, disappointed or thinking the worst of them.
  • Dream of a Better Tomorrow.  “Everyday do something that will inch you closer to a better tomorrow.”  Students who are able to dream of a better tomorrow see a positive outlook on life, not only for themselves, but others as well.  Instead of just dreaming, they are acting. They are engaged in daily acts of service to make the “better tomorrow” a reality.



Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, commonly called “Section 504,” is a federal law that protects students from discrimination based on disability. This law applies to all programs and activities that receive funding from the federal government—including the Fremont School County Joint School District #215. Every school in the district is required to publish each school’s Section 504 School Coordinator’s contact information. At South Fremont Junior High School the coordinator’s titles and contact information are as follows: 

Jan Stronks
Section 504 School Coordinator

Equal Opportunities and Benefits

Federal and State law also protects students from disability discrimination in public schools. These laws make sure that students with disabilities have educational opportunities and benefits equal to those provided to students without disabilities. To be protected by these laws, a student must have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities.

Under Section 504, students with disabilities can access the accommodations, aids, and services they need to access and benefit from education. Section 504 requires that public schools provide a "free appropriate public education" (FAPE) to every student with a disability — regardless of the nature or severity of the disability.
