Our governance structure is set up so that teachers answer to the administration, the administration answers to the board of trustees, and the board answers to the Association. That is why SJCS is characterized as a parent-run school, and it is part of what helps create the sense of ownership and community here. Current parents, past parents, employees, and any adults who care about SJCS are eligible to become members. We hope you consider joining the SJCS Association today!
