  About The School  

Welcome to Peotone Junior High School

Peotone Junior High School houses students in grades sixth through eighth. Our enrollment for the upcoming school year will be approximately 340 students. The building was built in 1954 as Peotone High School with two additions built in later years. The most recent was the addition of the library in 1989. In 2001 with a new high school being built this building became Peotone Junior High School.

Academically, Peotone Junior High School offers a traditional schedule with the core curriculum. In addition to the core curriculum classes are offered in the areas of computers, art, and general music.

We offer a variety of activities and clubs for our students. The hopes of the staff is that each individual will be involved in at least one activity. Every student has the opportunity to join the fun of our Positive Behavior Incentive System(PBIS). Peotone Junior High is a member of the Kan-Will Conference as well as the IESA.
