School Song:

High School

"Though Years may come,

And many days may pass away.

The memories of ol' J'ville High

Will always stay.

The spirit, so loyal,

Brings honor to your name.

The Gold and Blue Royal,

the colors always mean the same.

The friendships dear,

that we made here

Will still remain.

The Indians, too, are always true

To you! (You, you, you, you)

Though years may come and years may go,

Remember this...

We're always true to you,

Ol' JHS!"

Middle School

"All Hail to J'ville's Honor

Best in the land.

We are United,

And for victory stand.

We sail the sea of Triumph,

o'er this great land.

We're ever fighting,

For our Dear JMS Braves!"
