My experience at Jeffers High School was amazing. The teachers and ancillary staff took time to know each student. The level of attention received by the staff helped prepare me for college and then commission in the US Air Force. There are numerous clubs and activities for students to be involved in. With the worry of school safety in today's society, Jeffers High never felt unsafe in any way.

All of our teachers are committed to making sure you understand the material, their teaching styles are very above average.
I'm a senior at Jeffers High School and have gone here for my whole high school career. I like the small class sizes where I can get to know my teachers and classmates well. The teachers here are always willing to help. I really enjoyed the trades programs and would like to see more of them formed.
