Principal's Message


Welcome, new and returning Buena Park Junior High families and students to the 2019-2020 school year. Our theme this school year is “Do.” Everyone has been hard at work this summer preparing for the students. We are all eager to welcome in the new school year.


Orientation day is very important for 7th grade students and parents in order to find out information about the school, pick up class schedules, purchase spirit wear, purchase PE clothes and tour the campus. If you are unable to attend orientation, our school office will be open beginning Thursday, August 1st to assist you with any questions you may have. We look forward to an exciting and successful school year!
