Welcome to the Home of the Roadrunners

R. Pete Woodard Junior High School is proud to welcome you to our Internet home. Here you can learn about us and what's going on. Just check out the school calendar or the news and events page. We Roadies are always up to something good, whether it's athletics or club activities.

We're also proud of our physical location in southwest sunny Arizona. The city of Yuma is known for its history and mild winter weather. Nestled against the Mexican border, in the heart of the beautiful Sonoran Desert, it's no surprise that our school exhibits a rich Hispanic heritage that we're proud of. Yuma's a great place to live and go to school.
