The Memorial Junior High community supports relationships that develop personal responsibility, respect, trust, and creating a safe learning environment. We engage students in developing leadership skills that promote college and career readiness and lifelong learning by using innovative technology and research-proven strategies.
Memorial Junior High School opened its doors in 2011, following a renaming and reconfiguration of Byrd and Nimitz Middle Schools under Project Schoolhouse. Memorial Junior High was named as a memorial to all Tulsa students and teachers who had fought in World War I and II and the Korean Conflict. The legacy of the veterans memorialized by the school's name reflects the admiration of the veterans by the community for their courage and sacrifice on behalf of the United States of America.
At Memorial Junior High, we use a blended learning model with a student-centered approach to instruction that uses online learning, giving students control over the pace and path they take toward their learning goals. In addition to more traditional tasks, small group activities, and individual tutoring. Through this program, called INCharge, students move at their own pace, using in-class supports, web-based videos, and digital articles, and teacher resources to develop their learning. Our students make great strides in their learning as we focus on how they learn best. Our students have access to tablets to use both during the school day and at home as they continue their learning outside of school time.
Our after school robotics program provides students with hands on learning in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Robotics gives students the opportunity to use their knowledge and imagination to dream big and create something new. With 3D modeling and computer-aided design, our students build drones, underwater robots, quad-flyers, and more.
