About JEH

Johanna Echols-Hansen Continuation High School (JEH) is committed to providing high-quality education to a diverse student body. JEH serves students who have been unsuccessful at the comprehensive high school or who need a more flexible schedule for personal reasons. The student population is made up of juniors and seniors who are at least 16 years old. JEH is a member of the Big Picture School network built on the following three premises:
  1. learning must be based on the interests and goals of each student
  2. curriculum must be relevant to people and places in the world
  3. students' abilities must be measured by the authentic quality of their work.
The goals of the school are to move beyond credit recovery and a focus on graduation only but graduating with a focus more on what happens after high school; that learning is interest driven, and students find relevance in their work as the learning is based in real-world matters that pertain to the student and the community. This is achieved through a program centered on building student ownership of learning through the creation of individual Learning Through Interests (LTI) plans promoting the philosophy of one student at a time.
