Posted April 20, 2005

This is my daughter's first year in JVHS and my first experience in any high school. So far, we have been extremely pleased with the education and the teachers of this school. The teachers work with the parents to meet our needs. The teachers are always accessible (mostly via emails) and they are always accomodating. My daughter speaks highly of ALL her teachers. The Speech and Debate team is the BEST under Ms. Havron. The choir team is the BEST under Ms. Taylor. GO JV!

My son started this year at JV. I went many years ago (88) and it all just seems to be the same. He had a hard time in the beginning but things seem to be settling down a bit. My only advise is to try and get your kids in Level 1 class. They are night and day to mainstream classes. The teachers struggle with on level kids. They misbehave WAY too much. NO RESPECT.
