Missions Statement

The mission of Chester County Junior High School is to equip our students with feelings of self-worth and respect for others, to foster the skills necessary to encourage critical thinking, and to develop abilities to adapt to social and technological changes. With these strengths, our students will be able to compete and be productive members of the national and global society.

Our school educates students in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. We have approximately 700 students and 25 teachers.

Kris Todd, Principal

Todd joins the Chester County School System with 29 years of education experience and 17 years in administration. From 2006 until 2014, he served as principal at Milan High School, and he transferred to the central office in the Fall of 2014.

In addition to his education background, Todd is a volunteer firefighter and assistant chief in his Milan community. He is also a certified EMT and helps with the EMS and ambulance service. He is a Lions Club member and active in community activities. In doing these extracurricular activities, he appreciates the wide range of experiences they provide, and he credits them as helping him in his school work and dealings outside of the school.

Todd is a firm believer in public education, and he wants his school to focus on student learning. He plans to do anything he can to see that CCJHS drives students academically and fully prepares them for high school.

As a newcomer to Chester County, he has found "something special here," and he wants to help further the academic reputation of Chester County Junior High School and the Chester County School System as a whole.
