I have recently graduated and though Jefferson High is a small school with very few resources, the instructors continues to encourage the students to become extraordinary young men and women. That way, one day the students may be able to come back to his or her community and give back.

The Jefferson County High School genuinely is a school of family. If you, as a student, attend school here, obey the teachers, and complete assignments effectively and on time, you have nothing to worry about. I would say that its is very traditional and executes procedures strictly by the book. Overall, my experience at the Jefferson County High School was unforgettable.
Jefferson County In Mississippi is a great school to me. It's not that much there but it's still great. The athletes do there work and make good grades. The principle is very encouraging. The teachers will help you if needed. Mostly everyone gets Alone with one another. I would like them to get more technology
