    The faculty and staff at JSMAL understand that true leadership begins and ends with service to others.  They have supported students with food deliveries to homes, paid for cadet haircuts, provided uniforms for students in need, and countless other gestures of care and concern.  As one parent shared, “Each day school begins, not with a bell ring, but with the Reveille/First Call Military trumpet salute which starts the school day with order, discipline and positivity.”
