Why do you think JHS is special? JHS is filled with diversity, which makes every day interesting.  New clubs and activities are established, and it gives everyone an opportunity to become well-rounded

What was your favorite class and/or teacher and why? My favorite class has been public speaking with Mrs. Price.  Not only was it the most beneficial course I could’ve taken, but it was the most enjoyable.  Mrs. Price does an outstanding job preparing her students for any type of public speaking, and after working with her I realized how important it is in preparation for college interviews, job interviews, and for any other future endeavors.

How do you think JHS prepared you for your life after graduation? Thanks to all of the college courses offered here, I feel as though my transition from high school to college will be much easier.  I learned to make adjustments in my schedule to improve time management, and I’ve become accustomed to what is required of me in order to succeed.
