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!

I graduated from this school in 1999. I love this brand new school. The mascot was the rapids and the best teachers in this world.

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.
