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.

While most of teachers are very effective and caring, some at Jefferson just do not care. The academics are great, but the school building itself is in desperate need for repairs, despite the building of a gigantic two story field house. All in all, the schools reputation builds an image they cannot afford to live up to.
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.
