“JHS offers many musical and AP programs that other schools do not, and employs remarkable teachers, that should be recognized for the opportunities they provide to students. My time at JHS has allowed me to explore my interests and passions. I have also already experienced college classes through APs, and have received guidance from my teachers that I can carry with me after graduation.”
