Jefferson County High School Reviews
Rating 3.43 out of 5 84 reviews
This school has had such a great impact on me simply for the reason that my eldest sister went here and I used to watch her march in band; then my second eldest came and followed in her footsteps. So when I got to the school I did the same thing and the program had changed me for the better. The only thing I would change about the school is us having newer materials in class and a better looking school. We live in a poverty stricken area, so I just want the best for my class and the ones to come after.
Jefferson County High has a very tight-knit school community. The school focuses on producing high test scores and does so successfully. I would like to see them focus more on a college readiness pathway.
I liked the diverse amount of clubs and organizations. Something that needs to be changed is the administration and the overall tone of the school.
The teachers were also helpful, supportive, and always made sure everyone was on track. The principal at the time I attend care about his students and made sure everyone was on the pathway to graduate. I enjoyed my time here.
Jefferson County High School is the average school for a student to attend. Since the county, being so small, is very lowly populated, the school consist of three small cities. Jefferson County High School hires great staff members and caring teachers, so every student will get the feeling that there is always someone who wants them to accomplish something. However, we are such a impoverished county that we don’t have the finical support to keep up with some of the extracurricular activities such as; track and field, tennis, softball, and color guard (flagging). These extracurricular activities then to keep the young out of trouble, but they’re usually so expensive to partake in. The teachers also aren’t provided with enough resources to fully prepare students for college. Yet they do the best of their ability.
The experience was fun but sometimes stressing. There was a lot of drama and bad behavior from other kids. A lot of my bad experiences was from the other students. Overall I had a good high school career but I know it could have been better.
I like the way the teachers respect the students including me. They help me when I need help and they treat me with a lot of respect and kindness. They are the number one recommended teachers that can get a high school student ready for college.The activities that my school has are great and we have a lot of fun. The football program is excellent, and so is all the other sports including basketball, baseball, track and etc. The food is great especially the pizza, but I would like to see a healthier lunch. I would also like to see a little more discipline from my administrators. I would love to see a healthier breakfast also, and a snack breaks during class.
Throughout my 4 years at Jefferson County High School it’s been okay. We have a handful of teachers who really care about the students instead of their monthly salary. Our school is mainly sports praised you hear more about sports versus academics and fine arts.
It is a very great school! Somewhat strict, does have a problem with fighting amongst students. But, overall learning is at an all time high.
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 have had a great learning experience at Jefferson County High School. I believe that the education that I received here will be beneficial to my success in college.
Jefferson County High School was an okay high school experiences . They have an awesome football team so the first semester is very interesting watching the team fight their way through the play-offs . Since it is based in a small community there are some teachers they that bend over backwards to help students however there are also some very lenient and lazy ones as well
This school was by far the most helpful institution there is. The teachers and faculty push us to be great and encourages students to strive for the best in everything they do.
I would like to see teachers and students become more involved with each other. There is a certain level of respect that must be given and received in a school for everyone to learn successfully.
Overall my experience was good. The staff are all great and they truly care about the success of the students. The only suggestion I have is that they add more AP and possibly some IB courses so that students can challenge themselves and get more out of their education. This would also help students from this school when applying for competitive colleges since this high school is not very large and prestigious.
Great school with teachers that are dedicated to your education success. Great amount of choices for career paths. Support system from administration is overwhelming and greatly appreciated. This school is a great school that offers you the chance to be successful with your future.
There are may academics offer at this school such as, AP Lit, AP Calculus, Spanish, etc. However, in classes some classes like Advance Placement requires more work than the normal classes.
