Hopwood junior high school class of the year 2k15

Hopwood Junior High School is the larger of two institutions of junior high education on the island of Saipan. Hopwood Junior High School (HJHS) was founded in 1949 as the Saipan Intermediate School and then renamed in 1962 after Admiral Herbert Gladstone Hopwood of the United States Navy. Admiral Hopwood served as Commander in Chief of the United States Pacific Fleet from 1958 to 1960. He was also the Commanding Officer for the Northern Mariana Islands in the 1950s.


During World War II, the location of the school was a cemetery for the Fourth Marine Division.

HJHS's school mascot is the Hilitai (monitor lizard), and its school colors are dark blue and gold.

Every School Year, Hopwood Junior High School has a Promotion Ceremony for its eighth graders. On this day, they award the Top Ten, the Honorable Mentions, the Principal's Award (Leadership Award), the Commissioner's Award (Salutatorian), and the Board of Education Award (Valedictorian).
