JCHS

Client: Jewish Community High School in SF
Project Brief:

The original brief was simply to “copy” the school’s existing site from an expensive and somewhat unwieldy platform over to WordPress, while possibly simplifying some of the content structure. Over the course of some months, the project gradually expanded into a full-blown redesign. Menus, page layouts, the school calendar, staff listings, news feeds: everything transformed into a cleaner and more modern look for the school.

JCHS staff are still able to update all the sections and media they need to, but without the bloat that characterized the previous platform. The WordPress framework and theme will allow for significant improvements in SEO and accessibility going forward as well.

Building out the new site involved Custom Post Types for athletic teams, drama productions, staff and board members, as well as custom layouts for curriculum pages, team pages, student activity pages, calendar pages, etc.
