Why do you think JHS is special? With very strong sports, music and art programs, along with a plethora of clubs, there is something for every student to get involved with outside of academics.

What was your favorite class and/or teacher and why? AP Calculus with Mr. Lumia because the challenging material pushed me and I felt accomplished after learning each unit. Mr. Lumia devoted his time and energy into teaching his students, and it was easy to see he loves what he does.

How do you think JHS prepared you for life after graduation? The advanced coursework at JHS has prepared me for college level work.
