Congratulations to our JMS Mock Trial Team for winning 2nd place in the Constitutional Rights Foundation Annual Mock Trial Program. The program was created to help students acquire a working knowledge of our judicial system, develop analytical abilities and communication skills, and gain an understanding of their obligations and responsibilities as participating members of our society. This years team, consisting of 29 middle school students, competed against 53 schools in Los Angeles County to finish in 2nd place. Jefferson Middle School was the only public school in the finals amongst the top 8 schools in the competition. Under the incredible leadership of program director, George Carney, our students were well prepared once again to represent the district. SEF is proud to support such an amazing program involving both middle and high school students!!
