Welcome to Brea Junior High School!

Brea Junior High School is one of the finest junior high schools in Orange County! We are a high-performing school where all 900 students are academically challenged and where they are provided with the curriculum, instruction, support, and time they need to meet rigorous academic standards. The curriculum and extracurricular programs here at BJH are motivating, engaging, and tap into our students’ interests and curiosity. Our students learn to understand important concepts, develop essential skills and apply what they learn to real-world situations.

Brea Junior High School is founded on its Bobcat P.R.I.D.E! Bobcats are a compassionate and courageous community of learners who commit to excellence in academics, citizenship, and personal P.R.I.D.E.


Positive Attitude - Show kindness and empathy. 

Respect - Listen and follow directions. Treat others the way you want to be treated.

Integrity - Be honest. Do what’s right at all times.

Determination - Work hard and make the most of every moment. 

Excellence - Put forth effort to learn every day. Achieve your personal best!


Here at Brea Junior High School, our students have the opportunity for both independent inquiry and learning in cooperation with others. They have time to be reflective and numerous opportunities to make decisions about their learning. There are high expectations for all students and we are committed to encouraging and supporting every student to produce work of high quality. We see the true value of building independence and a strong work ethic in every one of our students in order to keep their options open well beyond their high school years and into their college and career futures.
