There are more cons than pros to JHHS. Although they are ahead of the game with technological advances and tools utilized in the classroom, the administration is overpowering and controlling and have forced several very excellent educators to quit their job (s) at JHHS. My daughter lost an excellent English teacher due to just this circumstance. The administration cares more about test scores, meeting AYP, and hiring "friends" from other states, rather than quality of the teaching. There is more of an emphasis on Body of Evidence testing and assessments and the upper echelon of the student body, that those with low reading and math scores, ELL, or IEP, are simply forgotten along the way. Due to this, there are not very many creative classes or electives. JHHS claims to be democratic, however, input from teacher's and parents is overuled by administration.
