Jefferson County High School Reviews
Jefferson County High School is such a good school overall, the students are diverse there's so many clubs to chose from, and the classes we can take are so many. There is so many beautiful faces and ethnicities with a plethora of personalities. Not only that, but the schools clubs are involved with the community, even other countries! As well as many assorted ones to chose from. I am so excited about all the honor and A.P classes the next generation can take and get involved in. With everything going on in the world, I am proud to say our school is cutting down on bullying and harassment so well. Our principals and vice principals and teachers are involved and prepared for whats coming next.
Jefferson County is not a bad school to go to, but some of the teachers can't teach us the correct way due to poor administration rules coming from our principals and the school board. Most students, unless they ask, are not informed about college opportunities. Also, instead of focusing on teaching us tips for the ACT, our school does TNReady testing prepping. I'd like to see many things change in our school, but mostly I think our teachers should be paid higher salaries. I hear about some teachers struggling financially, and it's bit fair to them. They teach the future generations of doctors, lawyers, and engineers.
Jefferson County high school in Tennessee is a great place to learn! It's such a huge school! My freshman class had 1200 kids. The teachers were great, but I would definitely suggest they add better elective classes. My junior year, I was forced to take a parenting class, or a class that let's you plan your wedding out on paper when i wanted an accelerated math class.Those were my only two options. So I asked my mom to homeschool me and we both agreed that was better than wasting my time.
