Rick Schauss

Centerville-Abington Junior High has an enrollment of approximately 285 students in grades 7 and 8 and is staffed by 14 full time teachers and eight rotation instructors.

The instructional staff is divided into two teams. Each grade level team is comprised of six teachers assigned to provide integrated experiences in mathematics, science, humanities, business, health, and physical education.  A related arts and science team of eight staff provide exploratory experiences in character education, careers, foreign language, reading, art, band and choir.   The schedule is a block schedule that is the same as the high school.   This allows for the sharing of staff to enhance our programs.
Additional programs include mentoring, tutorial, classes for integrating mildly and moderately handicapped students, and services for learning disabled. Each of these programs has a certified instructor and a full complement of paraprofessional staff. Support staff include one principal, one guidance counselor, a media specialist, a corporation computer coordinator, one secretary, two custodians, one cafeteria manager, and three food service staff. The school is large enough to offer a variety of instructional programs and extra-curricular opportunities yet small enough to act as an extended family working together and caring for each other.

Our Building
Centerville-Abington Junior High School (8K)On November 19, 1995 an eighteen year dream was realized when the community met to dedicate the new Centerville-Abington Junior High School building. The facility was the result of many long hours of planning and designing to enable the staff to provide an educational program for all of the junior high age youth of the Centerville-Abington School Corporation.
