Jefferson Area Local School District Reviews

It was a wonderful experience, from the students and staff to the clubs/activities. I loved the school spirit and how everybody got along and how teachers are understandable and actually help you. Yes, there are hardships but everybody has them. I love how teachers try helping you with the reality of college. The food could be better, but I will give credit to the lunch staff making it better. The athletic program and music program are absolutely wonderful and gives a wonderful experience! Jefferson Area gives many opportunities which is quite awesome in my opinion. If I had the choice of going to another school or staying here, I would stay here for sure. I am honored to graduate from here!

The high school itself is very nice, the building has just been built several years ago and most of the staff is very nice. There is a good handful of teachers though that are just awful and we have had some major issues with some staff in the past. The guidance counselor there is also never really there to help you and is VERY hard to get ahold of ,she doesn't talk about scholarships at all, she just doesn't seem to be fit for her position. The high school principle ,Mr.Huber is wonderful though he is by far my favorite staff at the school. He has helped me get a lot of opportunities to study outside of the school. Our school offers study abroad, many schools don't offer these great opportunities that is why I gave them the rating I did. The classes aren't too difficult and most of the students aren't very friendly but we all kind of get along ,and no one really fights. Jefferson is an alright school to attend but I wouldn't recommend it.
Being a student at Jefferson Area High School, is like being one big family. The teachers really care about you, if they see you don't understand something they happily come to help. The Academics are excellent, Jefferson offers your common core classes and they also offer AP classes. . The school website offers many resources for both students and parents, the school website offers each student a different log in to a program called student access where each student can daily keep up with there grades see if anything is missing. Safety is a top priority at Jefferson we do emergency drills a couple times through out the year. The students have a high level of school spirit our student section for every sport is always filled . If I had to rate the College Readiness the school gives the students on a scale of 1 to 10 I would definitely rate it as a 10, the guidance counselor always has her door open for any grade student .The students always have a high level of school sprit.
