Amazing school with caring and professsional staff. My son goes here and he is so very happy. I don't know how great schools figures these "ratings" but their system must be seriously flawed. JRHS has a great leadership team, a robust AP program with many options for my child to have a rigorous experience in a diverse and inclusive environment. Recent leadership changes have shifted the culture of the building and we are so excited for the years to come!! Go Rapids!
My son recently graduated and I have two other children there. My kids have thrived at JRHS. They have had teachers who have I spired and motivated. I have no reservations about my kids attending JRHS. There are tons of clubs and activities for all students to join. I have no doubts that my kids are well prepared for college and beyond.
Fostering a mindset that the high school is a community and everyone plays a role in ensuring the success of the high school. They encourage empowerment and independence which helps students grow and learn accountability and pride. All of this leads to students learning integrity.
