JRH Academics

The DCE Junior High offers a broad curriculum designed to help students prepare for a 21st-century career, balance professional and personal responsibilities, and be prepared — at any point in their post-secondary life — to be a successful learner on the job or while attending a two- or four-year college or university. The curriculum is designed around 16 Career Clusters that provide secondary students with the opportunity to explore career fields and areas of study while earning four- and two-year college credits, attaining industry credentials, gaining hands-on classroom experience, and completing work-based learning opportunities prior to graduation. 

Our Portrait of a Graduate framework assesses student readiness based on the breadth and depth of their coursework, participation in extracurricular activities, standardized test scores, grades, community service, and ability to demonstrate soft skills within and beyond the classroom. Our robust Academic and Career Program helps students make informed choices and our diverse co-curricular activities allow them to serve the community, develop life and leadership skills and explore their interests outside of the classroom.
