Jefferson County Schools Reviews

I had a lovely experience during my educational career at Jefferson County Public Schools. For the most part, I had loving and caring teachers who went above and beyond in the classroom. During my high school career, we had many unfortunate events occur over the years. Many deaths between faculty and memorable students. As a whole, the community came together with open arms and a drive to stay strong. I only wish that all teachers and administrators were like this. Unfortunately, there were a few staff members who seemed not to care for a students success and their thoughts. I also hope that one day a cafeteria can be seen as a place for fuel, and not a place where students go to eat frozen food. I believe that a large part of a students success is what they’re putting in their body, and some cannot reach their full potential without the help of a healthy diet. With that said, I just hope for an administration that strives in helping students reach for their future.

I enjoyed the teachers very much. They are highly educated and assisted me in my learning. I attended Washington High School, in Charles Town, West Virginia for four years. Their curriculum allowed me to take Advanced Placement and Honors courses. This was fantastic as it pushed me to the best of my abilities. I have graduated and was accepted to Seton Hall University, Rutgers, Drexel, George Mason, and West Virginia University. Town, West Virginia. I am currently a Freshman at Seton Hall and although the course work is difficult I am not having any trouble keeping up due to the foundation supplied to me from the educators at Washington High.
I've lived in Jefferson County my entire life, and I have little to no complaints. I would have to say that the only negative things I can think of are that, when I went to Washington High School, I never really felt as if they were properly preparing us for our college years and beyond that - into our adult years AKA the real world. I wish I would have had more opportunities to learn about real-life tasks and issues that our American people haveon a day-to-day basis. I.e. I would have liked to have learned about finances, insurance, filing taxes properly, budgeting, and so much more. Other than that, I enjoyed me entire academic Carter in the Jefferson County School system.
