GJHS Student Stories

Computer Science with Mr. Driskill- Students are coding an "infection" game on MicroBits and testing them out.
Computer Science with Mr. Driskill- Students are participating in a cyber security CTF (Catch the Flag) competition. In this CTF, students used a lot of different cryptography and cyber forensics techniques to find hidden "flags" which are typically a string of numbers, letters, and/ or symbols.
Computer Science with Mr. Driskill- Students used Java to create a summative programming project. Some of the programs created included a Snake game, Pong, "Choose your own adventure" stories, and a Sarcastic Calculator (ex: if you type in 2+2, it will ask you why you really need a calculator for something so simple.)
3rd Annual Pancake Wars-- Students in Mrs. Nacke's Family and Consumer Science classes combined with students in Mrs. Shelby's art classes to create edible works of art! Mrs. Nacke's classes did the baking and product critiquing while Mrs. Shelby's classes did the cooking. All enjoyed eating the pancakes!
Greenbrier Junior High is so proud of our students and staff who worked hard to ensure we were ranked as an A school AGAIN based on the ESSA School Index Report!!!
Greenbrier Junior High School was recently recognized by the Office for Education Policy at the University of Arkansas as a school where students demonstrated high growth on the 2017-18 ACT Aspire.

News Worth Noting

Parents of current 8th graders, while GJHS does offer concurrent credit classes in 9th grade (CBA and DLC Health); AP Human Geography is NOT a concurrent credit course. This means students do not have to meet Accuplacer or ACT assessment requirements to enroll in the AP Human Geography course.

Students must have a written note from a parent or guardian before being allowed to ride a different bus after school. Thank you for your help with this!

If you will require a Driver's Attendance/ Grade Form or an ACT Student Identification Form, please contact the school office two days prior to the date you will need it. We want to make sure everything is correct and ready for you to pickup.
