“JHS nurtures the interest and abilities of every type of student. Whether he is an individual who wants to build his resume incredulously or one who wants no more than to stick to academics. JHS affords each young adult with the paramount standard of excellence in any of a plethora of activities. Although the course material was dreadful, I enjoyed AP Calculus with Mr. Lumia because he had an uncustomary ability to hold the attention of students when subjects and theorems came to feel like inaccessible matters. He made eighty minutes of otherwise agonizing mathematics accessible. JHS fostered my talents while demanding I face my greatest fears and aversions. I know that I will head to college with the ability to manage my time and wisely complete my requirements and goals regardless of my passion for any certain study or program.”
