Junior High 6th - 8th Grades

We at IHM understand that 6th - 8th is not your typical Junior High levels, however, as part of the Diocese of Little Rock and a thorough understanding of the expectations of two of our local High Schools, we work to create an environment that builds student readiness for High School at Catholic High and Mount St. Mary's Academy.
