Jefferson Academy High School Reviews

Jefferson Academy High School has been a great fit for me because of it's smaller size, the athletic programs and clubs, the teachers, coaches, and mostly the challenging curriculum. The rigorous curriculum along with the opportunities to take college classes has really helped me prepare for college. My counselor and teachers have been very helpful and care a lot about my education. I have also had the best soccer and track coaches anyone could ask for. Overall my Junior High and High School experience here at JA has been truly great.

I really like the people and how small the school is. I dislike the block schedule because I only have each subject for half a year, which gives me more time to forget what I learned. There are a lot of higher level classes offered, like Advanced Placement and college classes through Front Range Community College. The teachers are nice, understanding, and they know what they are talking about. The people are also nice and because the school is so small everyone knows pretty much everyone, which can be a good or a bad thing depending on the person. I really like it. The building is nice and new, it has a very open feel to it.
Jefferson Academy has been my home since first grade, excluding a short stint my freshman year at a public school. In my time away from JA, I gained a profound perspective on just how lucky the students are. As a charter school, the curriculum is a little different than an average public school, and it is definitely more rigorous. The education and work ethic that you learn at JA is amazing, and really gets kids ready for college. The teachers all care so much about their students, and the small size of the school allows for teachers to understand most of the needs of the students. They push students to do their best because they care, and they see the potential of the students. The sports and clubs are not the most amazing, but everything is growing, and allows students to lead and grow with the programs. I would definitely recommend Jefferson Academy if you are interested in a rigorous School for your student.
