Jefferson County R-VII School District Reviews

Really loved this small school. The school went one to one 6 years ago, and while it is a new high school the programs and sports are very unique. The teachers are passionate about their jobs, and really care about the kids. They recently enforced an every kid counts program, meaning they are dedicated to helping every student succeed. They are a very dedicated community who jump a moment's notice to help families in need. They recently raised 1700 dollars in 3 days for an opposing team's member Dru who recently lost her leg. This was a huge accomplishment seeing how the school has roughly only 400 students raised more money than much larger schools who raised only 800 dollars. This goes to show how dedicated this community is to helping others.

Excellent school with great teachers and staff! This is a small school where everyone knows you by name and your not just another student or number. The sports teams are some of the highest rated within the division and have the best coaches in the county.
I have enjoyed my time at Jefferson. I have lived in many states and have been to a good number of schools. Jefferson staff treats students with respect. The staff is very involved and helpful.
