 Initiatives underway at the school include instructional support to address the needs of the Common Core and research-based instructional strategies.  The school board has engaged in strategic planning over the past years and has increased budget in staffing in order to provide strong instructional support, increased professional development and committed funds toward 1-to-1 computing.

JHS sits in a high Rocky Mountain valley near the Continental Divide in Boulder, Montana.  The Boulder River is described as one of the "best undiscovered trout streams" in Montana. An abundance of state and federal property provide access to fishing, hunting, camping, hiking, biking, snowmobiling and skiing.  The area is rural but is in close proximity to the state capitol and the larger cities in SW Montana.
