Welcome to JP Stevens High School PTSO


Welcome to JP Stevens PTSO 2018-2019 Family!

High school is a very important time in the lives of teenagers. Beyond the obvious physical changes, emotional and psychological needs of teenagers need to be addressed to ensure their holistic well being. Parenting teenagers in high school is a turning point in the relationship between parents and teenagers. PTSO is a forum for parents to get together to share their parenting successes, concerns and provide support and scope for discussion on matters related to dealing with their teenagers’ stress, anxiety and college preparedness. We run programs such as, Parent Counseling with the school counselors and Parent Mentoring with JPS Alumni parents to help parents.

PTSO raises funds to support events for the students and parents. Funds raised are used to award scholarships to students & support Project Graduation which is the biggest event on the night of the graduation for outgoing seniors. PTSO also organizes other events such as Color Walk/Run and Art competition.

The PTSO is a valuable asset and support to you as a JP Stevens student’s parent. JP Stevens PTSO extends beyond fundraising to provide a platform for ongoing parent collaboration, interaction with school counselors, opportunities for students’ networking with professionals, amongst several initiatives.

Please sign-up for the PTSO membership and support the activities by volunteering your valuable time and inputs. The membership fees is $15/- per family.
