Jefferson City School District Reviews

Fortunately I followed most of the rules and was very successful whenever I graduated. With saying that I wish they had better options for students that did not grow up in the best environments and I wished the teachers were empathetic for the students. For me the school system worked with how I understood things, but that did not work for others. I wish there were more learning options for students to have a better understanding of material and so more students can be successful.

Currently my school is under construction, if the school was completed then I would give it 5 stars. The teachers in JCSD genuinely have a life long impact on their students. Not only do they have fantastic ways of teaching students the mandatory curriculum, but also life lesson that contributes to the students greatly in preparing for the future. JCSD also has an amazing PTA and provide phenomenal support for sports through their booster clubs.
My children received quality educational opportunities at their elementary school. The middle schools were good, but the rigor was lacking. The high school was good. The teachers were generally very good, but the facilities were sub-standard compared to other school districts. Recently a bond and levy passed and there will be a new high school and the existing HS will be completely renovated. This is a very good thing!
