Why do you think JHS is special?

JHS’ staff is unable to be compared to any other school because of the dedication, passion, and determination to succeed that each member possesses.

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

My favorite class was public speaking with Mrs. Price because that class focused less on grades and memorization of information and more on improving skills and having fun while doing so. No one was ever left out or judged on anything and that’s important.

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

JHS taught me how to cooperate and communicate with a variety of people and has succeeded in further improving my ability to work and learn both individually and with groups of people.
