I have now went to the school for about four years and over all it’s a great school! But every school has it’s downfalls. It seems like everyday either the hot water or the heat is broken, and yeah I understand a school is a lot of work to manage but so is having a thousand freezing cold students! Not only that but the discipline system that they have going on isn’t always the best.

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 High school is an amazing school to attend! They have such a compassionate staff and they really focus on helping students succeed. Everyone you meet is kind and always open to helping others!
