Things to Know BEFORE School Starts
Facts About Prattville
Unofficial Guide to Prattville and CATville
Prattville is a city in Autauga and Elmore counties in the State of Alabama. As of the 2010 census, the population of the city is 33,960. Nicknamed "The Fountain City" due to the many artesian wells in the city, it serves as the county seat of Autauga.

Prattville was founded in 1839 by industrialist and architect Daniel Pratt. The area was largely inhabited by Native Americans and a few settlers when Pratt first observed the Autauga Creek in the 1830s. He purchased approximately 1,000 acres at $21.00 an acre, and set out to build his manufacturing facilities and the town along the banks of Autauga Creek. The location was chosen because the creek could supply power to the cotton gin manufacturing equipment. The town became an industrial center and rapidly grew. In 1868, it was named the county seat for Autauga County.

Prattville contains several sites on the National Register of Historic Places, including the Daniel Pratt Historic District, Bell House and Buena Vista.

The word "Autauga" is derived from the Native American word "Atagi" which means "pure water".

Welcome to PJHS!
We welcome all of you moving
into the area and want to say a special welcome to our military families.
So, is it weird being the new kid?
Haha!! True!

Yeah... but not as weird as riding in a canoe with a cat.
First let me tell
you about Prattville, then
I will tell you about the school.
Tips from the Principals
1. Do not touch anyone or their stuff.
2. If a teacher reprimands your behavior, do NOT explain why you did it. Simply correct your behavior.
If a teacher reprimands another student, do NOT comment.
3. If you do happen to get into trouble, the teacher will still be glad to see you the next day. You will start each day with a "tabula rasa." Google it.
4. Your behavior on the school bus should be excellent. The driver should not be distracted. This is a safety issue to be taken seriously.
5. Use social media wisely. It can easily ruin relationships and reputations.
6. Never bring social media drama to school. The consequences will be severe.
7. Look your teachers in the eyes and introduce yourself.
8. There is no problem that violence won't make worse.
9. We strictly enforce the cell phone rules
10. Don't be afraid of your new school. You're a cat now ! Welcome to the family!
