Welcome to the website of the Arthur A. Richards Junior High School where the Suns will embark on the most rewarding time of their lives.

The members of the AARJHS Family are committed to providing “Quality Education for All” through a comprehensive program of instruction.  The faculty and staff are prepared and ready to assist each child with the necessary resources and provide students with guidance and knowledge as they continue their academic journey.


The AARJHS Suns always SHINE because we are united by a love of learning. Both the student body and our enthusiastic teachers and staff members strive to meet each new challenge with a determined attitude while respecting one another, school property, and most importantly, themselves.
