Jefferson City Schools Reviews
Jefferson High School is in a small town filled with wonderful people. The faculty truly cares about their students and opens up their schedules to help them in whatever way needed. There have even been staff that have graduated from Jefferson High School and came back to teach because they love it so much. Jefferson has a diverse environment that seems very accepting to all. We take great pride in our talent in sports, the band, FFA, JROTC, drama, and have many other areas for students to get involved as well. Jefferson High School is currently ranked the number one school in the state of Georgia, which is too much of a surprise considering all of its many accomplishments.
I really liked all of the academic opportunities and classes that Jefferson offered. Being a student as early as when I was a 1st grader to now - senior year, I have always felt like I was being challenged in the classrooms. I also really enjoyed the learning environment, I always felt very safe and comfortable in the classrooms and on campus. Something that I would have liked to experience more at Jefferson is activities, clubs and sports. Although it is a very small community, I believe having a wide variety of extracurricular activities would ultimately attract a more diverse group of people and allow the community to grow and thrive to be its very best.
Jefferson is an incredible school. Compared to the other schools in the area, they excel in academics and athletics and they are nationally ranked. However, because of their achievevements, the administration takes itself so seriously, almost too serious. Consequences for students are often harsh and unnecessary, but they claim that this is how they maintain greatness. In addition, they hold athletics to a higher importance than the arts, and football to an even higher importance. This eclipses the achievements of students involved in other programs.
