HOT Schools

JJIS is a proud member of The Higher Order of Thinking Schools Network. The HOT Schools Network is a community of professionals that are committed to teaching and learning in, about, and through the arts. HOT practices and strategies ignite a sense of wonder, celebrate student voice, and inspire a life-long learning.

The core components of a HOT school are:

  • strong arts;
  • arts integration; and
  • democratic practice

We are delighted to be a school where students blossom into creative problem solvers and critical thinkers who take responsibility to use their voice to make a difference in our community and in our world.
