Jefferson Academy High School Reviews
Rating 4.11 out of 5 64 reviews
It's not bad. There are some very caring teachers and a large variety of classes and clubs. However, they do not provide enough sports and they often don't send out the correct or any information to the students. It is a college prep school, so if you join, the only goal is to get you into college.
Ive been here since 7th grade, and its a very close-knit community of students, the teachers ive had so far have been nice and knowledgeble, its got its issues, like food quality and school spirit, but its a small school, so i dont expect much else
I really liked how the school worked on a semester system allowing myself and my peers to focus on what we were interested in.
Jefferson Academy High School was a great college-prep high school. Academics can cause a lot of stress and there isn't great support for mental health issues. Counselors and admin can help a lot with your ambitions, though. If you want to get something changed in the school or if you want to do something new you definitely can. Most teachers are really good at their job. Some bullying problems but less than most high schools
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 was an incredibly challenging school, but it certainly helped me prepare for college. Most of my classes are easy compared to some of the ones I took at JA. All of the teachers are welcoming and care about your education.
The teachers are good and the curriculum is hard but it does prepare you for college. However the admin is ridiculous and very bad.
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.
The school is amazing. I have been only at public schools before I went and this school is by far better. The teachers are very helpful and engaged with the students. The school takes academics and college readiness very seriously.
This school take academics very seriously, almost too seriously.
There are measures available, but they are not very prominent.
I have attended this school for my entire high school career and I'm in my last year. The school spends its money on useless things like televisions for the gym, instead of buying new gear for the track team when the equipment is falling apart. The clubs struggle to get support and are often removed because of funding and Students struggle to balance the amount of homework with a club or sport and often have to drop it to keep up with the curriculum. The only thing that makes this school unique is that it has won several awards in academics. However if I could do it all over again I would never go back to this school.
This school is honestly pretty great. It challenged me and taught me how to work hard for good grades. The extracurricular activities are great and I participated in as many as I could, I'll never forget my experience there or some of the wonderful teachers there.
I do not eat buy food from school, so it is difficult to say much about this. Most students are fairly content about the food provided at school, and there are always many options available.
The principal and guidance counselors at this school are very good at their jobs and are always lending a hand to students. The office staff is also very welcoming and are glad to help with any problems a student or parent may have. Attendance in this school are very high; most students skip school only if absolutely necessary. Dress code is being enforced more strictly than before now, but students are still allowed to dress however they wish (as long as it is school appropriate, of course).
This school has plenty of options to choose from when it comes to sports. Most students participate in at least one sport, and all students support the school athletes. Sport options range from the typical basketball and track and field to the less common such as golf and lacrosse. The school's sports teams play fairly well at games and events and often attract large crowds of students who cheer on the players.
All of the teachers at this school are extremely good at what they do and are always doing what is best for the students. All the teachers are knowledgeable and help students who are struggling. When asked what students like most about this school, many say that the teachers are what makes this school great.
