The JCHS community is small by design, allowing us to embrace each student’s distinct strengths and provide the kind of attention that helps each student to thrive.

At JCHS, we celebrate our students’ diverse backgrounds, and teach students how to engage others in respectful debate, appreciate divergent points of view, and advance the critical thinking skills essential for becoming engaged citizens. Our community is built upon the belief that the knowledge, leadership skills, self-assurance, and personal connections built in high school create a strong foundation that lasts a lifetime.
