Mediocre to the core. JSRHS does not seek or praise outstanding achievement. In many cases it is warehouse for idle minds awaiting entry into the timber industry, or worse.
Discipline is sorely lacking in this school. There are so many troublemakers and they are not dealt with properly. It takes a very individually strong student to succeed here.
The special education department and guidance department are not parent friendly due to lack of diligence with returning calls and e-mails. This is a very difficult school for mediocre to not-so-good students. Unfortunately, the guidance and SpecED departments don't make it any more tolerable for students or parents. They are very hard to get a hold of and very slow for a plan of action.
I absolutely love it. The teachers are AMAZING, the environment is great, there are a lot of programs offered, lots of grat class options...and the most epic thing ever...Intersession - every other year, the school offers 2 days afteer midterms for students to take all kinds of unique courses, like Self-Defense, Yoga, Juggling and Circus Arts, etc. Yes, the students are occasionally mean to each other, but this happens in all high schools. Overall, (forgive my terminology) I think this school is slathered in awesome sauce! =)
