Jefferson Township School District Reviews

I really enjoyed JTHS. The teachers for the most part are helpful and easy to talk to. The other students in my grade were all nice, sure there are always cliques, but really no bullying went on in my grade. My school is very serious about stopping bullying.
The teachers and administrators went out of their way to make us graduating seniors feel special since we missed out on so much this year. They made this pandemic somewhat bearable.
I would recommend JTHS to anyone and I am happy I had a wonderful experience there!

I liked the faculty at Jefferson Township schools. Of course there are some that are not as good was others, but most have a real passion for teaching. The facilities on the other hand needs updating and improvements throughout the buildings. There are leaks in the roof and the heating/ac does not work.
Jefferson Township provides an excellent education. The schools offer numerous sports, clubs, resources, college ready courses, and much more. I’ve been challenged while accumulating college credits.
