"Dedicated to Excellence"

Javier Ramirez, Principal

Welcome to Matilija Junior High, where our goal is to enrich and nurture student achievement and academic excellence. Matilija staff and administration provide a stimulating and rigorous curriculum through the teaching of the California Content Standards. Our highly-qualified teachers are determined to raise student achievement by using data-driven and research-based instructional strategies.

We are committed to providing a safe and orderly campus that has a zero tolerance for bullying/harassment, including cyber-bullying.

Each student is given the opportunity to participate in a variety of enrichment opportunities through our exploratory programs, music, support classes and after-school clubs and sports.

Matilija is a school that values each child’s personal growth, academically and socially, in preparation for the challenges and opportunities in high school and beyond.

Letter from the Board and administration addressing the safety of our students and, in particular, undocumented immigrant families.

Click to review the letters in both English and Spanish that were mailed on Friday, April 21, 2017 to secondary students' homes and placed in elementary students' backpacks.  The text was written in response to statements made about undocumented immigrants during the presidential campaign and soon after the election. About half of the school districts in the County have adopted such positions speaking directly to this issue.
