Advanced classes and rigorous course work equip our students with the core knowledge they need to excel in middle school, high school and college.

While at JWJ, high school credit may be earned for Honors Algebra I, Honors Geometry, Algebra II, Physical Science, Biology, French I, Spanish I, and Chinese I.
In addition to academic rigor, students are given a well-rounded education through numerous opportunities to explore the arts, physical education, and cutting edge sciences. We feature all 4 fine arts disciplines - painting & sculpture, music, theatre, and dance. We also offer courses in computer technologies and programming. Our athletic students can choose from over 10 different sports such as football, baseball, swimming, volleyball, softball, and soccer.
At JWJ, we know that life's most important lessons are learned both inside and outside of the classroom. We provide students with opportunities to nurture and grow their existing knowledge and talents, while at the same time making both friends and memories that will last a lifetime. We are friends. We are family. We are smart, creative, athletic, fierce, funny, diverse and talented. We are original!
