Computer Science Programs

Don’t call the Janesville School’s computer science program its “best kept secret.”  That makes it sound like a restaurant or travel destination.

Instead, the School District of Janesville's computer science department is a quiet powerhouse, a force propelling students into the best colleges and then into high-paying jobs immediately after graduation.

How strong is the program?


This Week in Kindergarten

How do you kindergarten during a pandemic? Very carefully.
Last fall we spent some time in Mrs. Amy London’s kindergarten class at Adams Elementary.  Here’s what we learned: School goes on, pandemic or no pandemic. 

In this series, we’ll share some of our adventures, and tell you how Kindergarten works during challenging times.


Rock University High School

A semester’s tuition at UW-Madison is $10,725. At UW-Whitewater, it’s $7,706.
Those costs are before books and room and board.

Parents, imagine how those costs would change if your child left high school with a two-year associate degree with credits transferable to a four-year college.
Students, imagine leaving high school with a degree that allowed you to make real money.


SDJ Senior Stories

We highlight stand-out high school seniors from all 6 SDJ high schools during the month of May!

SDJ has many pathways a student may take to graduate prepared for college, career, and life. Therefore, each student's story is unique. Some students found a love of sport; some already have college credit under their belt; some overcame tremendous challenges on their path to graduation. No matter the pathway, each story of success is one to celebrate.

See below, the Senior Stories that appeared on SDJ social media channels featuring graduates of the Class of 2021!
