SJHS is NOT for snobs & those with issues with diversity!!! It is for those wanting their children to have a well rounded, diverse experience that will enable them to encounter life at any level of culture. There really is very little to complain about, other than 1) you are not allowed to be a bully/snob, 2) the world will NOT revolve around your child be/c everyone is treated equally, 3) you will not be privileged be/c of your skin color, 4) no one there to cater to the "special" & premier people, 5) there is a high moral code to live by, 6) there are too many opportunities for students to succeed, lead, create, discover, establish and learn, and 7) people are NICE - not your typical rude, competitive, catty NV culture at all! After 1st year, my son has established 2 new clubs, won 9 awards, past 2 AP exams (4/5), invited to attend 2 national leadership conf, and has been given the opportunity to do more in 1 year at SJHS then ANY OTHER PW school. Most of all he has grow tremendously in character and confidence. Not sure what all the complaining is about... With all this school offers, would the same complains exist if it's population were 60%+ white?
