Why do you think JHS is special?
JHS provides opportunities unlike that of any other schools in the area. Its Advanced Placement and musical programs are in a class of their own.
What was your favorite class and/or teacher and why?
I wish I had the space to recognize all of the amazing teachers I’ve had at JHS; however, Mr. Lumia seemed to stand out during my senior year of schooling. His intelligence and care for students was evident every day, and he turned out to be not just an instructor, but a dear friend.
How do you think JHS prepared you for your life after graduation?
JHS has taught me how to be successful through hard work, responsibility, and leadership. These skills will be instrumental in my future endeavors.
