Why do you think JHS is special?

We have an incredibly diverse student body that excels in academics, sports and music.

What was your favorite class and/or teacher and why?

While I have so much respect and admiration for all my teachers, Public Speaking ended up being one of my favorite classes of my high school career. It proved both extremely beneficial and tremendously entertaining, and I will carry those skills for the rest of my life.

How do you think JHS prepared you for your life after graduation?

JHS’ teachers and opportunities have exponentially increased my self-confidence. I know that I can never be fully prepared for the challenges that lie ahead, but I will be ready to face them with boundless passion and undaunted courage.
