This is not your average continuation school. These kids here are not only smart but have more potential than anyone around this town gives them credit for. Too bad they allowed Golden Gate to rent part of their site, this was not a good/smart move on behalf of JSUSD.I think in time hopefully they can move somewhere else so the two are not associated with each other.
