    "This charter high school is an excellent school with excellent teachers put in place by former principal Robert Boehnstangel. The reason I rate this school so low is that the current school board that was installed in september 2013 has in only one month fired Dr. Boehnstangel over the hiring of a new football coach and other personal agendas of certain board members. The students, faculty and community are now divided over petty issues and I believe in only a few months the actions of a few have threatened the best interests of the entire school. What a shame. I had three children who graduated from JICS and they did extremely well in college. I would not enroll a child here until this current turmoil is over and current board members are voted out. Parents need to get involved and search out the truth. Don't believe the lawyers."

    "Both children attended and are now excelling in both college and community life. JICHS has enthusiastic teachers and excellent adult leadership. I was thrilled with the high level of academics and also with the many extracurricular activities that were made available to students from every background. I also appreciated that the principal made himself available whenever I had a question or a comment. There is truly something for every student at JICHS."

    "I graduated in '87. Now a Charter school, my daughter is a Jr. This is a great school with really great kids all around. The teachers and staff are top notch and always willing to help the students. We, as parents, are informed of everything that involves our children from discipline to college help. We are proud and dedicated to JICHS!"

    "It was a public high school with Charleston County School District, which converted in 2003 to a charter high school. They receive more money from the state and have been able to start new programs, add new courses, and additional staff. The faculty and staff of JICHS care about their students and help them success by providing guidance and extra help with their classes."
