Eisenhower Junior High School serves more than 600 seventh and eighth grade students. Students at Eisenhower attend core courses: language arts, social studies, science, math, and physical education. In addition, students may choose from a variety of elective classes including: music, chorus, STEM, foreign language, and media.
Students at Eisenhower have an opportunity to become involved in a variety of after-school activities, clubs, and sports. Sports teams include cross-country, basketball, girls volleyball, wrestling, and track. These teams compete against other schools in the district. After-school activities such as soccer club, school play, yearbook, and intramurals are only a small example of the many opportunities our Eisenhower students have to stay active in school events.
The Eisenhower staff has adopted the Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS) program. They have identified three main school-wide expectations: Be Responsible, Be Respectful and Be Safe.
The English-Spanish Dual Language Program allows students in seventh and eighth grade to continue learning a second language during social studies and language classes. These students had been part of a similar program at district elementary schools. In 2006, Eisenhower received the honor of being named an International Spanish Academy. This program is in partnership with the Cervantes Institute of Chicago.
Eisenhower is part of a P.L.C. (professional learning community). Administration works with staff, students, parents, and community members to provide a comprehensive educational environment for Eisenhower students.
