This school has to be the worse school a child can go to. They have their picks in kids in this school. If you don't have money you nothing in this school but another piece of paper. I hope when my grandson is older that they will do away with a lot of teachers in this school if not he will attend another school even if I have to pay. I have seen how they treated my daughters friends that didn't have much so I would make sure that the child had nice stuff to where she wouldn't get talked about. Now that my daughter has graduated she has much respect for the less fortunate children. She gives to kids that have much and her friend in school that didn't have much are now best friends and make sure that these kids aren't put down.

One of the great things about JBSHS is the way staff and students accept each other and make the best of each day.

This school provides an excellent variety of academic classes. The guidance counselors do a great job at encouraging the students to choose the right classes. Many students earn scholatic and athletic scholarships. The band program is one of the best in the country. The band director provides opportunities to travel to and perform at beautiful and historic places such as Pearl Harbor. Parents are always made to feel welcome.
