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 High School is one of the best schools in East Tennessee. The teachers are very passionate and dedicated to helping students learn the material, even if it requires before or after school assistance. The Faculty does a wonderful job of monitoring student behavior, security, and student needs. The students at Jefferson County demonstrate his or her talents by enrolling in AP courses, competing in competitive athletics, or performing in the beloved fine arts programs. The one thing I appreciate about Jefferson County is the actions they take to prepare students for the ACT. Once a week, the faculty takes 30 minutes out of our day for ACT tutoring. I have found this very beneficial because I have seen an increase in my score. One thing Jefferson County could improve on is the use of its budget. It focuses too much on sports rather than other areas of the school such as academic classes, fine arts, and school clubs.
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.
