Jefferson Davis High School Reviews

I graduated from Jefferson Davis in 2009. I love the teachers. Every teacher I had cared about their students and their success. There wasn’t any bulling. People hung in their own clicks and didn’t really bother each other. Of course there were fights but I never heard of anyone being bullied. Jefferson Davis is a mostly African American school. What I dislike the most is the schools name and its mascot. It is named after a confederate soldier, and the mascot is a volunteer( it looks like a confederate horseman.. except he is wearing green and gold). It’s very disrespectful to what this country is supposed to represent to celebrate confederate soldiers and praise them in that way.

Jefferson Davis High School teachers and guidence counselors are not supportive at all. The guidence counselors were not involved with us in any type of way. The teachers barly taught. If I couldn’t change anything about this school, I would change the support system. I would constantly help students prepare for college. I would put organizations together to help students get better grades. I would get the counselors more involved with the kids. I would make Jefferson Davis High School a 5 star amazing school.
the school had good teacher and administration but there are some issue. I wish our safe should be taking more serious. the officers are lack at that the job and the school should have some serious consequences. The disciple for the student should be more take lightly. From the past years, the disorder of student have only increase and cause more dangerous issue toward other include and my sister. The teacher are good instructor but only few. Some can to provide and teach education, while other come from the paycheck. And also, those who only have a degree for teaching should be teacher not athlete coaches. Student be given a high quality of education because are the leader of future. We can’t success with item we now. So in conclusion i feel that the school turn around, and give some to be excited about.
