it was a great school! The staff cares another students. Especially John Cagle! I graduated in 2015 and that place was like a second home. There are tons of student activities and groups to get involved in. There is an amazing athletic program! The school is the second largest high school in the state of TN. There are over 2000 students in the school, and there were 609 in my freshman class alone! Overall, great school and great school system
I absolutely loved my experience with the Jefferson County School District. I’ve always had very engaging and helpful teachers that want to see you succeed. Safety is a priority within the school district; therefore, I always felt safe while in school.
