Why do you think JHS is special? It is a large school where you can always find an activity that you enjoy.

What was your favorite class and/or teacher and why? Biology of the Molecular Approach taught by Mrs. Lumia because it consisted of hands-on work that had actual scientific significance. The class was small so we became quite close with each other.
