Colton Junior High School

Our colors were purple and blue, but you never saw the two colors together. I was a student at Colton Junior High School from September 1969 to June 1971. I was a band geek. I was one of two tuba players in the band. For me, it was grades 7 and 8. We in Colton got into high school a whole year ahead of Redlands, Fontana, Rialto, and Corona. They stayed in junior high for their ninth grade. Colton, Riverside, Alvord, Jurupa, and Chaffey all had four year high schools.

Today they're all four year high schools.

Most of the "junior high schools" are now "middle schools" and incorporate grade 6, so they're all three year schools.

Junior high school is no more.
