Jordan High Motto
Honoring the past. Embracing the present. Anticipating the future.
Celebrating a century of tradition and legacy, our mission is to establish lifelong learning by encouraging, guiding, and challenging all of our students..
“Tradition is a part of us, and throughout the halls of Jordan, there are individuals which make Jordan stand tall within that tradition. To parallel our lives with the greatness it takes to maintain the tradition is evident in the football stands or the classroom or any other phase of life associated with Jordan. We create respect in victory and we maintain a silent spirit in defeat, knowing that our efforts are set at the top. Though each of us is different, we can all unite in taking credit for Jordan’s accomplishments and pride in being a Beetdigger”
- John Bishop, class of 1974
