The students at JCS are separated into four different houses.
The students of each the House wear the allotted colour uniform every Saturday. The students, once they are sorted into these houses, Compete with one another to earn points, generally through Academics, sports, and overcoming adversity. If students make poor choices, they can also lose points for their house. The points are then used to decide who wins the House Cup at the end of the school year celebration.
A house system is basically a way of organizing students into groups or houses vertically across the grade levels. In each house, students are expected to work together to achieve common goals. They share a group identity, symbolized in their house name and logo.
In essence, the houses create a smaller community for students and staff to interact with each other in school.
“It is not a building or a curriculum that makes a House: it is a network of member relationships, developed through long acquaintance in a stable community and regular interaction throughout the year.”
In each house, there will be roughly about 93 students per house from preschool to grade 8.
Once the students are assigned a house, this will be their house the entire time they attend the school.
