Why do you think JHS is special? Because of our size, our school offers numerous advanced level courses and extracurricular activities for students to participate in.

What was your favorite class and/or teacher? My favorite class is AP Calculus with Mr. Lumia because I love math but it is also challenging. My favorite teacher is Ms. Campbell. She has been my mentor throughout high school and she also taught me how to knit.

How do you think JHS prepared you for life after graduation? JHS is made up of a diverse student body so students are more prepared for the real world.
