The five pillars of NJHS are infused in our program: character, scholarship, leadership, service and citizenship. We meet every Friday during Pack Time in Room 8 with Mr. Lawrence and Mrs. Parker as the advisers. Both have been involved with NJHS previously and are excited for the activities and service opportunities this school year.
