“The AP courses JHS offers gives students a big challenge and the fact that it offers so many courses makes it stand out from other schools. I have been taught time-balancing and dedication, most importantly. The push to persevere and succeed is very high, and it has been a huge driving force toward where I am now. JHS put me in a mindset of dedication, something I will carry through life.”

“Though my favorite class has been AP Calculus, my favorite teacher is my 9th grade English teacher, Mrs. Price. She not only opened my mind exponentially during her course, she also guided me through all my other years at JHS, offering advice and support every step of the way. She has been a very defining aspect of my high school years.”
