“I think JHS is special because there is something here for everyone – whether it is art, music, science or something else – everyone has the opportunity to pursue what they love. At JHS, I learned the importance of taking responsibility for my studies, and keeping an open mind. Mrs. Stronz was my favorite teacher. She focused more on expanding our awareness than teaching us how to take a test.”
