It was a great school. They taught me a lot and I really did enjoy high school. I feel that they help you prepare for college.
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!
I am currently attending Jefferson County High School and definitely think it is a good school but there is room for improvement.
The school overall was a great environment to be in. It hosts several opportunities for kids to explore what field he or she would want to pursue. Whether it be in the medical field or trade school, they provided the certifications to ensure you are able to succeed.
For the most part of my experience at Jefferson County High School I have had a good experience. My teachers have been extraordinary and I have been able to make some really great friends while enrolled.
Jefferson County High School does a pretty good job at being inclusive for all students, with a large emphasis on college prep and CTE programs in the last two years of students' high school enrollment. I do feel there could be some different scheduling strategies though.
I personally love going to JCHS. It has the most caring and supportive staff a person could have. One minor change that needs to happen is more support for clubs. The sport teams have the support of the school, but when it comes to clubs, most do not even have support, nonetheless funding.
The school had a very good educational program. The teachers and staff were usually very kind. It had an excellent Advanced Placement Program.
The school is very large and there is a lot of academic diversity. It was a very safe environment with friendly teachers and staff.
Jefferson County High School is a great school. The faculty and staff are very helpful to the students. JCHS has great sports, activities, and clubs to join and many academic opportunities. The school for the most part is clean and sanitary. Its a great place to learn and get ready for college, work, and tech school.
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.
At Jefferson county high school what i liked most is that the teachers make you feel at home and they become like another mother. another thing is that the counselors will help you with anything you need help with.
My favorite part of Jefferson county high school is the amazing teaching staff. Many of the teachers sponsor the schools most popular clubs so most students have a positive experience with a lot of the teachers at the school. I loved getting to know most of the teachers and how easy it was to get to know them even before you had them as an actual teacher.
Jefferson County High School is the worst high school you could attend because of the faculty's attitude, and the way students are treated. The faculty is mostly rude, and they do not tolerate any form of disruption. The students are talked to like dogs, or treated with no respect. However, the high school's academic are wonderful if you can deal with the staff. They offer so many different areas of study.
This is my fourth year at Jefferson County High School, and overall, I'd say it's been an alright experience. There is a decent variety of AP classes and dual enrollment classes available, and it is relatively easy to take classes that appeal to you and what you want to study or practice. However, the school does not do a very good job of actually preparing students for college unless you plan to go to a community college or go into the military. They do not inform the students as well as they should in this regard. The average ACT score is only about 18, and obviously, they are failing in this aspect to prepare students for the test, and JCExcel is not helping. Not to mention, I did not always feel welcome at this school. The administration is homophobic and will not allow a GSA, but will allow every religious event/organization.
JCHS is doing a great job of bringing diversity to East Tennessee. The campus is very nice and the cafeteria has great food. The school counselors are amazing at pointing students in the right direction for plans after college. The amount of Programs of Study (concentrations) are almost endless.
I love Jefferson County High school. They really focus on you as the individual and help you accomplish your goals. They have some college ready classes you can take as a senior and it helps so much. One of the classes is called Senior Seminar. The class helps you stay organized and also goes through how to apply for colleges and scholarships. I personally think that class has helped me so much and helped me get a better understanding what I need to do to get ready for college.
