Principal's Corner

It is my pleasure to welcome staff, students, and parents to Compton Junior High School for the 2019-2020 school year.  I would like to introduce myself; I am Abraham Rivera, the new principal, and I am so honored to be here.  I have 20 years of experience in public education and am proud product of BCSD. I am very excited to join the hard working, knowledgeable, and dedicated Thundering Colts Team. Understanding that we, the Thundering Colts Staff, are accountable for the success of all our students, our motto is “Stampeding Towards Success!”


We believe that parents, guardians, and community members are an integral part of our students’ success.  We publish a monthly school newsletter that goes home the first Monday of each month.  The Newsletter will contain valuable information and calendar updates with a goal of better informing our community. Additionally, we invite you to be involved in your student’s school and welcome you to join us in the many activities and events happening at Compton Junior High School throughout the school year.


By now you should have received your student’s SBAC report of the California Standardized Test results. The Thundering Colt Staff takes great pride in the academic achievement made this past year. Please review the results with your student(s). Also we ask that you help your student(s) set a goal for this year SBAC testing in May- our goal is to improve every day!


Lastly, we would like to invite you to Compton Junior High School for a brief overview on our goals for the up-coming year. I will be hosting a “Welcome Back Thundering Colts” evening event on September 5th, 2019 from 5:30 pm-7:30 pm in our cafeteria. We look forward to a great year and cherish your support!
