TJ students have the opportunity to enroll in a variety of science classes, from biology and anatomy to physics, chemistry, and forensics. Consult the course catalog for more information.
In February 2012, TJHS competed in their first SkillsUSA Crime Scene Competiton vs other regional teams. Mr. Decker accompanied two teams to the competition which required students to demonstrate proper techniques in securing, documenting and processing a mock crime scene. While being judged by professional forensic scientists, our students had 45 minutes to identify, process and properly collect evidence from their crime scene as well as produce a detailed report and a sketch drawn to scale of their crime scene.
One of the two teams won the Regional Championship and qualified for the state competition. While our second team did not finish in the top 3, they also did a fantastic job preparing for and competing in the crime scene competition.
