" The turning point in my life was coming to CJHS because that was when I became a leader. I was empowered by my teachers and I learned how to be a good student. I developed a good work ethic, I took initiative, and I got to shape a lot of things that are still in existence at CJHS today. I definitely wouldn’t trade my unique experience for anything."
Congratulations to this year’s National Merit Semi-finalists, Evan Gorstein, Avidan Halivni, Joe Kupferberg and Nathaniel Moses. We are very proud of their achievements, and those of all our hardworking students! Their achievement is not only a testimony to their hard work, but to their comprehensive curriculum that they have taken over the past three years.
