The current principal is the best! While there are not many AP courses offered at this school, the principal will always do anything to help with accommodations. The students are slightly rebellious, but overall are smart hardworking students. The teachers work with everything they've been given and work very hard to give the students every piece of knowledge they can.

I have had fantastic teachers, since kindergarten at this school. It continues to amaze me how much the staff cares for the students. I have loved every experience, and how much the different classes provide the students a bright future.
I liked Jefferson, but I chose to go to the career technical school, rather than stay at Jefferson for the last 2 years of high school. Although I missed Jefferson, I took classes in the dental, pharmacy and medical lab and got a lot of background that prepared me better for my future.
