JP Class of 2015 Alum Named
Miss New Jersey!
Congratulations to Chhavi Verg who was named Miss New Jersey USA! Best of luck competing for Miss USA in the summer of 2017!
On October 16, 2016, Chhavi Verg, a J.P. Stevens High School alum (class of 2015) was crowned Miss New Jersey USA at the Hilton Hotel in Parsippany this past weekend.
At JP Stevens, Chhavi was on the e-board of the Spanish Honors Society, a member of Odyssey of the Mind, and HAWKS. She is currently in her second year at Rutgers University studying Marketing and Spanish. Chhavi is a trained Indian classical dancer and a certified personal trainer. She recently started her own vegan/vegetarian health and fitness blog to urge others to care for their health both physically and mentally.
A message from Chhavi for current J.P. students: "Dream big and no matter what anyone else says, always believe in yourself and your vision. Life is limitless and the only limits that exist are the ones you create in your head. Be sincere, give it your all, and never lose grit…that’s the key to making your dreams a reality."

Thank you to our parents, PTSO, the Class of 2013 and the Class of 2014 for your donations and support! We now have raised $15,000 and are that much closer to our goal of $50,000 for a classroom size greenhouse. Click here to learn more about our JP Greenhouse Project.
Students who are driven to school may be dropped off in two locations as directed by security. The traffic lane turning left before the flag pole and the left lane directly in front of the school. Please do not drop off students in the right lane directly in front of school as this is the bus lane. Click here for a diagram.
