Hardin-Jefferson completely prepared me for College. The academics are competitive and strong. The teachers are great. They are beyond willing to give extra help. I had teachers that would stay until 7 at night doing after school tutorials. I would recommend Hardin-Jefferson to everyone!

Hardin-Jefferson is the best school district in southeast Texas when it comes to academics as almost every student ends up moving on to college. There are little to no fights throughout the year and the biggest discipline problem (only) tends to be tardiness as well as dress code related problems. A few rules seem a little extra sometimes, but if that's the biggest problem a district has it has to be defined as a really good school.
Hardin-Jefferson is an excellent school for academics and college readiness. The school facilities could use some work, since there was so much damage after Hurricane Harvey.
