JVHS is seemly "good" in the sense if safety and class sizes. However, I am not impressed with the school's staff and adminstration team. If it was not for the parents of JVHS students the staff would have a problem because they are complacent and disconnected from their students. The staff lack communication with students and their parents. The environment is gloomy and lack s energy; teachers are negative and complain about the school to justify their short comings and lack of communication with parents. If is was not my child's sophomore I would consider relocating.
Staff needs to communicate more with parents when K level students are struggling. My k level student started struggling in her english class and i was not informed of this until they school moved to the lower level. That's a ridiculous way of monitoring students. Teachers are paid to do just that and failed my daughter, a college bound student, in this matter.
Students and parents are extremely clicky and judgemental. It's sad that adults act the way they do.
My son is a freshman , and in k level classes. The school faculty has been great so far, and I know that I can reach out to a teacher and get a quick response to any questions I might have.
Block schedule has worked well, and I feel gives the students and teachers the extra time they need to focus on the subject.
Overall very happy, and off to a great start!
My son recently graduated and my daughter is a senior. JV offers so many academic programs to prepare my children for college. In fact, the college counselor is wonderful. There are many workshops for parents and students to begin the college preparation.
