    The POBJFKHS at all levels encourages students at all levels and grades to participate in our award winning district-wide Independent Research program. In the 2018-2019 school year students will take grade specific research offerings that will teach them the fundamental skills, advanced skills and personalized research experiences. They will be scheduled for a class on and every other day basis for the entire school year.  Students are involved in both qualitative and quantitative research where they can explore and develop new research in a variety of areas: math, social/behavioral sciences, science, humanities, linguistics and other fields.
