Having two high schools financially will be more expensive for this community. You not only will have to hire twice the number of staff and faculty, but each of the schools would have to be equal with all the same amenities at each. Students would only have the choice of maybe three academies rather than the seven academy choices they get in one high school. The new high school will have all the athletic facilities, so there will not be a need to bus kids over to the current stadium. But the bottom line is these new academies will prepare our JCHS students with life skills, so when they graduate they are ready for college or careers.
