Why do you think JHS is special? JHS is special because there is no other high school with the sense of pride. This high school pushes students academically and with sports, music, and other extracurricular activities.
What was your favorite class and/or teacher and why? AP English 12 with Ms. Stronz, as this class helped my identity develop as far as world news. It also introduced my mind to different ways of thinking which is unbelievably important for life after high school.
How do you think JHS prepared you for life after graduation? JHS has allowed me to apply myself thoroughly through academics and more. I believe the responsibility, integrity, pride and time management JHS has helped me develop will be significant aspects of my life after high school.
