School Description and Mission Statement (School Year 2017-18)

Jamison High School (JHS) is the continuation high school of the Lemoore Union High School District.  It is located just east of Lemoore Union High School.  JHS serves a population of approximately 80 students in grades eleven through twelve, from a wide geographic area incorporating the communities of Lemoore, Stratford, Santa Rosa Rancheria Indian Reservation, the Island District, and the Lemoore Naval Air Station.
 
JHS is named in honor of Donald C. Jamison, the first principal and pioneer of continuation education in our school district. Mr. Jamison
was principal of the former South Lemoore High School from 1974 until his retirement in 1983.  It is said that Mr. Jamison was a fierce defender and advocate of “his kids” at South High and that he was committed to providing the guidance and nurturing that would ensure the success of each of his students, his philosophy of supporting students continues today at Jamison High School.
 
JHS was first accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) in the spring of 2006 and re-accredited in the Spring of 2009.  Being WASC accredited affords our students with many more opportunities after graduation.  Students will now have the opportunity to qualify for financial aide, enlist in the Military and attend four year colleges. 
 
Students are initially referred to JHS from the Student Discipline Review Board (SDRB) for a variety of reasons, including credit deficiencies, behavior and attendance problems, and also for students who volunteer to attend JHS due to seeking a smaller learning environment.  Students who are deemed “at risk” of not graduating are referred by their school counselor only when all possible supports have been utilized and exhausted at the students traditional school.  JHS is dedicated to providing personalized instruction for all students.
 
JHS strives to provide students with an alternate educational opportunity.  Small class sizes and a holistic approach to student learning provide students with a support system to facilitate student success.  Students at JHS have typically struggled with the traditional setting of a large traditional high school.  They see greater success in the flexibility and supportive program provided in an alternative setting.  It is because of this approach that a number of students who enroll at JHS do so on a voluntary basis.  Further, students who are eligible to return to the traditional comprehensive high school, elect to remain at JHS.  The staff at JHS feels these two phenomena are indicative of the quality education and of a staff who values students.

The school year is divided into three twelve-week trimesters.  The school day consists of six 60 minute periods.  The twelve-week trimester
system works well for the students because they can see their educational goals being met at a faster rate.  The longer periods allows the teachers to implement hands on project based assignments that correlate to the state standards and the opportunity during the period to re-teach the concepts when needed.  The majority of our students are full day students, while others have a modified schedule based on student needs.  The teacher to student ratio is 1 teacher to approximately 13 students.  The smaller number of students per class provides the opportunity for teachers to get to know the students which in turn build a strong working relationship in the classroom. A small student to staff ratio also provides students with the necessary attention for success.
 
The curriculum at JHS is designed around the Common Core State standards and the California High School Exit Exam. Teachers post and
explain the objective of the day. The staff ensures that all students will be able to meet school wide expectations by adapting lessons which embrace the varying learning modalities of our students. Such variety in lessons gives auditory learners, visual learners, and kinesthetic learners the opportunity to experience a rigorous standards based curriculum while not feeling overwhelmed by the academic process.  The districts technology department provides administration and staff with access to concise student achievement data reports such as results from SBAC, grades and summative assessments.  JHS uses this student achievement data in a timely manner to initiate and revise lesson plans, pacing guides and the
master schedule that focus on all students achieving the expected school-wide learning results and academic standards.
 
JHS students are offered a variety of curriculum to meet their graduation requirements.  In order to graduate, students must successfully complete 220 credits in the required and elective courses, complete 40 hours of community service, and pass the Senior Exit Interview.  Along with the core curriculum JHS offers a variety of elective classes such as Criminal Law, Forensics, Computers, Art History and also a graphic design/leadership class called Jamison Enterprises.  Jamison Enterprises allows the students to learn how to design and market t-shirts, and silkscreen for organizations in the community. 
 
JHS appreciates the technological demands that will be placed upon students exiting high school.  In order to prepare students for such demands, each classroom is equipped with internet capable computers where students learn internet research skills needed to complete class assignments.  There are two on campus computer labs that are capable of servicing twenty students each.  Every classroom is equipped with an LCD projector, SMART Board, document camera and clickers.  All classrooms have either laptops or chromebooks available on a one to one ratio to students.  
 
JHS is dedicated to providing a quality education to all students resulting in a High School Diploma, adequate preparation for the students’ individual post high school goals and preparation to be a responsible citizen.
 
Sandi Lowe, Principal
