“JHS has certainly prepared me for my post-graduation educational life as a result of the beneficially arduous classes and the difficult workload associated with them, which will allow me to adjust to the upcoming rigors of college. JHS is unique as we have a larger opportunity to take different, and more individually appealing, classes than most schools.“

“My favorite class at JHS was AP Biology, simply because biology has always interested me and because there is so much left to be discovered.”
