I, too, once believed that Jefferson City needed two high schools to serve our students. I have attended numerous meetings and asked many questions and now believe that our board is acting in the best interest of our students with choosing to move forward with the academy concept and the building of one school. If you think about it, it's the best of both worlds. A small school setting that also offers all of the benefits of a large school, i.e. more advanced courses, more courses in general to choose from, etc. Change is scary, but it can also be very exciting! Please go to meetings and check out the website the school has established to help you answer any questions you might have. I believe it is newjchs.us.
