ABOUT JUBAN PARC JR.
Dear Parents and Students,
On behalf of our faculty and staff. I would like to welcome you to Juban Parc Junior High. The faculty and staff are dedicated to providing the safest and most productive learning environment for the students here at JPJH. It is our goal to support students in their educational accomplishments and encourage them so that they may become productive citizens. It is our goal to foster a positive relationship between school, home, and community so that students continue to be successful during their time as a Juban Parc Jaguar and beyond.
Best of luck this year,
Greg Hayden, Principal
Juban Parc Junior High opened August 2010 with a student body of approximately 525 students. Construction for the school took two years and is located on 22 acres on Brown Road that was donated by the Renaissance Development Group, LLC, the developers of Juban Parc Subdivision. Bonds were issued in 2007 to cover the construction cost of the school. Existing Southside Junior High was split up with the new Juban Parc Junior High boundaries comprising the south end of the district. Southside Junior High and Denham Springs Junior High both held essay contests to determine the new mascot. JPJH Jaguars was the winning entry from a Denham Springs Junior High student while school colors of teal and black were decided on by input from School Board officials. The school opened its first year with Jeff Frizell as principal and Norman Picou as assistant principal. Amy Mohr was secretary. Clubs were created on the first year by teachers based on student interest and every student joined a club. Also in its inaugural year, JPJH implemented as many extracurricular sports as other neighboring junior high schools. Since it opened its doors in 2010, Juban Parc JH has continued to expand with the influx of new neighborhoods in the area.
