The only thing I liked about Jefferson County High School was the amount of fun I had. The teachers were okay but they definitely did not prepare me for college at all whatsoever. It seemed like the focus was more on getting the students involved in the school rather than education, in which I could understand given the fact that the school is very poor. I would just like to see a change in the entire school system altogether, starting with the principal. None of his solutions to the problems encountered at the school never work. He told us himself in a class meeting we had prior to multiple fights breaking out in one day that he knows he has failed. He's not a bad principal at all but I feel like he just needs a better team. It seems like he's running the school by himself because all of the other proffessionals who are suppose to help out don't quite fulfill their job.

Overall, I would have to describe my experience at Jefferson County High School as unequal, yet remarkable. The inequality of this school is demonstrated through sports; I feel that the administration cares more about football than our own academics. Another time where I feel a strong sense of inequality is at Honor's Day. The way the administration goes about rewarding those who have worked hard is ridiculous. Students who receive the perfect attendance award get to have parties as their reward, but students who obtain honor roll or distinguished honor roll, such as I do, only have the right to stand up where they are sitting, then they toss us a certificate on printer paper days later. That is pitiful! In middle and elementary school, we were given trophies, legitimate certificates, and medals for our hard academic work. Now, all we do is stand and receive a piece of paper, while the perfect attendance students enjoy pizza and ice cream. Truth be told, half of those students with perfect attendance do not even have passing grades, yet they get a larger reward than students who actually do work. Wow! On the contrary, Jefferson County High School does possess good qualities such as shop with a warrior. This is one event that gives the school uniqueness, being that students actually get to go out and shop for the less fortunate during the Christmas Holidays. Anoher event we have that show off our creativity would be homecoming, which is also one of my favorite experiences from JCHS. During this week, students get to show off their humor, creativity and overall dedication towards school spirit. Last, but not least, if I could do it all over, I probably would not choose this school again. This is because of other things that were unmentioned such as the lunch, our safety, respect between students and teachers, respect between the students, etc. The list goes on and ultimately, the bad outweighs the good.
It’s very outdated and has very limited opportunities for their students. If you don’t stick out, you’re left behind. If you don’t play football, you’re left behind. Get out while you can
