We have a large CTE Program as well as strong AP and Dual Enrollment opportunities.  We have worked hard to create a climate that is comfortable yet very rigorous for our students and staff. We are always working at JCHS to improve our school so feel free to offer any suggestions that you may have. We want each day at JCHS to be a positive experience for our students and staff.
