What is your favorite JS memory?
Our senior year homecoming game was unlike anything else. Nearly every student came! We were loud, we were excited, and we were having so much fun as one gigantic, chaotic, beautiful mass. I am not a huge sports person but I cheered so loud and was so invested in the game - it's nearly impossible not to go wild. We all dressed in one color and wore awesome face paint too - the spirit was infectious! Honestly, this was probably one of the happiest, most fun moments of my life.
It is a beautiful, welcoming home that will help you thrive.

Of course, there will be stress at times, but the school is a family that is always there to offer support and keep you motivated.
Advice to JS Students:
Get involved and take that risk! Whether it's trying out for a sport, joining a club, or signing up for a theater production, you will have a fun time and it is a great way to meet people. Getting to share your experiences with the people around you and getting to participate in something in which you can later be proud is priceless. You won't regret the things you do, but you will regret the things you didn't do.
