About Our School

Aptos Junior High School serves nearly 700 seventh and eighth grade students in Pajaro Valley Unified School District. The attendance zone for AJHS is in the greater Aptos area, but many students attend from outside the normal enrollment zone through open enrollment

AJHS offers a range of exciting activities including athletics, the 8th grade trip to Washington DC, band, culinary arts, California Junior Scholarship Federation (CJSF), and more!

In the summer of 2018, AJHS was the recipient of a major construction project funded through local bond measures that included the construction of eight brand new classrooms, new landscaping, and new blacktop for our athletics area.

For the Summer of 2019, AJHS is happy to introduce our inaugural Bridge Program for incoming 7th graders. Find more info here!

Due to COVID-19, our after school programs for 2020-21 have been canceled. We look forward to a safe return to campus in the future when we can offer these opportunities to our students!
