The cheerleading squad at Friendswood Junior High consists of an eligible group of students devoting most of their time to promoting school spirit, supporting our athletes, and serving as model students around our campus. They appear at games, parades, pep rallies, and many more events throughout the year. The competitive squad represents FJH at several area competitions, as well as NCA Nationals in Dallas. As disciplined athletes, FJH Cheerleaders are devoted, energetic, and responsible for FJH’s upbeat spirit!
FJH Theatre Department is proud to offer all students at Friendswood Junior High an opportunity to the world of Theatre Arts. As a member of Drama Club, students join a group of students that includes not only accomplished actors but people who are dedicated and eager to learn more, create, and participate in the art of Theatre. Not only in the way of acting but with technical/backstage/front of the house opportunities as well. Students contribute their time and talents to the FJH theatre program through participation in theatre classes, school plays, and Drama Festival participation. Our Drama Club officers, who are nominated from the Varsity Production Theatre class, provide the student leadership for all FJH Theatre Department and Drama Club functions. Any student at FJH may join the FJH Drama Club, which meets once a month on a Wednesday afternoon, even if they are not currently enrolled in a Theatre Arts class.
The National Junior Honor Society is the nation’s premier organization established to recognized outstanding junior high students. It is more than just an honor roll as the NJHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, character, and citizenship. The organization was founded in 1929, and is a “junior” version of the high school’s National Honor Society. Requirements include, but are not limited to maintaining a scholastic average of 90+, remain active in at least one school or community activity, and attendance at monthly meetings.

The club is responsible for hosting many fun events, like Decorating a Float & Riding in the FISD Homecoming Parade, Red Ribbon Week, Trick or Treating for Canned Goods, Holiday of Hope Toy Drive, Christy’s Wish Bingo Night, and the February Social. Our group encourages student leadership in schools and communities, and empowers young adults to use these skills throughout their lives.

Our UIL Academic competition is open for 7th and 8th graders who would like to compete academically. “The events are designed to complement and expand upon what students learn in the classroom, both through learning specific subject knowledge, and through learning skills that are valuable in many disciplines.” Starting in early December students may pick up an “Intent to Participate” form from Mrs. Crisp in room 7100. Mrs. Crisp will take forms for one week and fill in areas accordingly. Our team will practice after school on the Thursdays from 3:50 -5:00 PM – students will need to be picked up at 5:00 PM in the front of the school by the flagpole. The date of the actual meet is TBA. Students who return their forms will then receive more information at our first practice. We have a fabulous UIL academic team.
