Welcome to Flowing Wells Junior High School, proud home of the Mustangs! We have great pride in our school, our staff, and our students. We are glad that you have chosen to visit our website and learn more about this special place that we call Flowing Wells!
We have the pleasure of teaching close to 900 seventh and eighth graders every day. Our teachers and staff are committed to providing the best teaching and learning experiences for every child at our school. We believe that junior high is a critical time in each child’s academic and social development. Therefore, we work hard to actively engage students in learning and provide instruction that is rigorous and relevant. In addition, we know that junior high is a great time for students to have fun! Please explore our website to see all of the ways that we provide opportunities for students to get involved in sports, clubs, travel, fine arts, technology, and leadership.
We encourage parents to check on student progress by using their child's PowerSchool Parent Portal account. This tool allows parents and students to see current grades, attendance, and progress. It also allows parents to contact teachers via e-mail.
Please spend a few moments in this site to stay familiar with our school, our calendar, and our upcoming events. Our FAQ page will help answer some questions, but please feell free to contact us anytime with questions or concerns.
Welcome Back Mustang Families,
We are ready for a great year of learning at Flowing Wells Junior High School, and we want to welcome all of our new families and students! We are excited to announce that Flowing Wells Junior High maintained our B letter grade in the Arizona school accountability system again! Way to go Mustangs! Although we are proud of our accomplishments, our staff knows that there is still work to do to ensure that each student at FWJH is ready for high school and beyond. Therefore, as a staff we are continuing to implement the Arizona Common Core Standards. In addition, we are continuing our school-wide writing initiative as well as increasing our expectations of students reading independently at home.
Athletics is off to a quick start with students participating in football, cross country, softball, boys volleyball, and tennis. We would also like to remind you that Mondays through Thursdays we will offer our before and after school Skills for Success program. Skills will include study hall in all core content areas as well as enrichment classes. Students who stay after school for our skills program can ride the bus home at 4:15 p.m. The Quarter 1 Skills for Success calendar is now available on our website and in our front office. Skills will start the week of August 25.
Please mark your calendars; we encourage all families to stop by and meet your child’s teachers on Thursday, August 28 from 5:00 until 7:00 p.m. at our open house. During the open house, we will also be holding a book fair in the library. Come shop, have fun, and support the Mustangs! The open house format is an open time frame for parents and families to come any time between 5:00 and 7:00 p.m. to meet teachers and check out the campus. We hope to see you there!
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, contact your child’s teacher or the administrative team at 696-8552.

The Meaning of Labor Day
Something that often gets lost is the true meaning of holidays. We’re all anxious for that day off of school or work, but make sure you stop and pay your respects to the reason behind the holiday. Read more >>>
