John Stark Regional High School

Senior Photo Information

John Stark uses Geskus for all of our school photo needs, and this includes the Senior Photos in the yearbook. They have generously offered to take yearbook photos at NO COST for seniors. Seniors who wish to take advantage of this option will schedule their photo appointment with Ms. Smith during the month of October.

Geskus does offer other options for additional sitting fees, so please feel free to hear the options, but know that you are ultimately under no obligation to pay anything if all you desire is your photo in the yearbook.

Geskus Appointment Number: 1-800-948-1120

Geskus will be on site at John Stark Regional High School in November. (There is no need to worry if you cannot fit in your senior photo session over the summer) Seniors will be able to schedule an appointment at JSR during their free block or before/after school.


-Not all seniors can afford to have professional photos, so we can provide this for all seniors at no cost.

-No candids, photos taken in the back yard, photos taken with a personal camera etc…will be accepted as a senior portrait. There are pages for candid shots, so if seniors have a candid they want in the yearbook, there will be a chance to submit these in the fall, but this will not be used as their OFFICIAL SENIOR PHOTO.


In the past, many seniors have selected other professional photographers to take their senior photos. Below is a list of approved vendors who are familiar with our yearbook specifications. Please feel free to contact them and hear about their packages and pricing options.

• A Thousand Words Photography website:
• Tim Avery Photography website:
• Terri Trier Photography website:

If you have another professional photographer in mind, please email the name and contact information to Ms. Smith or Ms. Crisp ASAP.

It is our desire to have the best quality yearbook possible while making sure every senior has access to a professional photo for their Senior Portrait.

Learning Continues in Summer School

John Stark has a strong tradition of summer programming at little to no cost to students.  This year students will continue music lessons, get a "Jump Start" on ninth- or tenth-grade, and work on course competencies that they have not yet demonstrated in their school year classes.
