About the School Name

The school was named after John Wesley (Jack) James who during his educational career he worked as a teacher, assistant principal, administrative assistant to the superintendent, and, in 1961, superintendent of secondary schools. Until his retirement in 1973, he piloted the secondary department through a period of unprecedented growth in student population, school construction, and curriculum development. Jack James is known and admired for his compassion for people; his ever-calm and fair-minded approach to students, staff, and the community at large has won him a reputation as a progressive educator, highly respected for the integrity and dignity he always brought to his position.
