My grandchildren have and are attending, my three children attended. It is a school where children are at the age when they are the most vulnerable, half child and want to be adult.

LJHS is not currently the school it once was, or could be again. Leadership is lacking, and the staff is frustrated. The teachers in this school are, for the most part, excellent, with most of them there for the long haul. This results in good and bad - those long entrenched see no reason to be progressive or innovative, because it has 'always been done this way.' As far as student education, the students receive adequate instruction, but (with a few notable exceptions)generally not much beyond that. This school needs overhaul.
