The Plank


A Jesuit High School Student Publication

Welcome to The Plank!  The Jesuit High School student newspaper will function as an information hub for all members of the Jesuit community.  Future, current, and former Jesuit students will now be able to easily access information about what is going on around Jesuit’s campus and how students are getting involved in their community.  The Plank’s home will be online and will feature a monthly print edition.  Thank you for visiting and we are excited for another great Plank year.

Wrestling team ready for strong season

With winter sports officially beginning in December, Jesuit High School’s wrestling team is ready to hit the mat. 

This year’s wrestling team is young, with only one returning senior, but that won’t stop the Marauders from competing for the top spot in league dual matches.

Glimpse of the Brotherhood

Each year, Jesuit High School hosts several Shadow Days that allow potential Jesuit students to “shadow” a current student for a day. Prospective students get a glimpse of what life is like on campus and in the classrooms during a typical school day.

“Mr. Worldwide”

Amongst being a world traveller and skilled mathematician, Mr. Nicholas Llanos has come to Jesuit High School to bring his active yet relaxed teaching style to the school.

After teaching Integrated Math at Grant High School, Mr. Llanos became dissatisfied with the personal interaction with the district, causing him to look for opportunities elsewhere.

Jesuit’s fall play dramatizes social justice

With a keen awareness for topical events, Jesuit High School Drama presents “In the Matter of Scott Daniel Warren, or Scenes and Fragments about a Play in the Desert,” a company-written play that explores and grapples with the realities and morality of immigration.

Preparation for the play

Each year, Jesuit High School Drama puts on two shows in the Black Box Theater — a fall play and a spring musical. Production for each of these shows requires hours of dedication from actors and technicians to create polished and memorable performances.
