Our Mission Statement

The mission of Russell Sage JHS, in collaboration with students, families, and the community, is to inspire and empower every student to be a life-long learner and problem solver, guided by the practice of inquiry.

Further, we endeavor to foster an appreciation for the beauty and diversity in our world, and prepare our students to face ethical challenges with respect for self and others. We strive to ready our students for high school, college, career, and to serve the community in a positive and impactful manner.

Russell Sage Junior High School is a diverse collaborative school community dedicated to achieving academic excellence for all students. Through standards-driven instruction, a nurturing environment, and the development of civic and social skills necessary to function productively in the work, we will create a family of life-long learners.
