Jefferson High School Reviews
Rating 3.76 out of 5 33 reviews
My first year I loved it and over the years it got worse. I had a lot of fun and my best year was Freshman year, but some of the administration was not the best.
When I first moved to Boulder, Montana, I had never heard of Jefferson High School. The small-town feel was a new experience that I have learned to love. Making friends in middle school and continuing those friendships throughout high school has meant a lot to me. Going to school four days a week has taken a lot of extra stress from the week off my shoulders. If I could describe Jefferson in one word I would say it’s relaxing. It’s relaxed because the classes here are a lot easier to pass due to small assignment amounts and the simple curriculums that are taught here. These qualities of Jefferson make it easier to succeed in school and accomplish the main goal of graduating.
I honestly love it here so much. I started my high school career at a different school and had a not so good experience, so my decision to transfer was one of the best I have ever made. The only thing I would change is the attitudes of other students toward the school because they honestly do not know how awful other schools are.
Jefferson High is a rural school with only 250 students. It has been growing in recent years. Although we are rural we have many great clubs and sports through the school, although many are lacking. The music and arts departments often lack in funding. Participation in these activities isn't low, so it is hard to maintain them with a lack of support.
I would like to see more academic focus and less focus on sports. The focus on sports overtakes all the focus on academics. They do have a literacy grant, however, the academics aren't really that impressive to me.
Jefferson high school is a poor school that has it perks including the 4 day school week but it lacks on many important categories including education, bullying, sports, and many other aspects of the school itself. The biggest problem hands down is the administration, the worst of them being the secretary. I would not recommend this school.
Jefferson High School accepted me as a transfer in my sophomore year. I have Type 1 Diabetes. The staff, administrators and my fellow students have been there for me. The smaller class sizes and more one-on-one with the teachers is a big plus at JHS. The advanced drama program is awesome, and the architectural drafting program is great. I have met some of the nicest and genuinely caring people at Jefferson High School. Many of my fellow students -- and some teachers -- will be my friends for life. At Jefferson High School, our school spirit is strong, the school is safe, and we're like family.
The extracurricular opportunities are okay at this school. There are a variety of clubs and organizations but they don't meet very regularly or have many activities.
My overall experience at this school has been good or okay. What makes this school unique is that, due to its small size, students are able to participate in a wide variety of activities from sports to Youth Legislature, to Skills USA. I would choose this school again because it is the only school in the community that I live in and I prefer the small school setting over a larger school.
There are a ton of extracurricular activities offered. Kids do not need to be superstars to participate in sports and band, etc.
Most of the teachers are great and really care about the students and their success. There are a few that aren't the greatest however.
I believe JHS is a safe environment for our children. I know of no threats to them.
We appreciate the small school experience and the ability of our kids to participate in many activities without being superstars.
There are many extracurricular activities to choose from and most students participate in at least one
The teachers are all very involved and put in a lot of extra hours.
There is a big variety of clubs at this school. I am personally in National Honor Society and Art Club. We are always setting up activities to do. There are also a lot of sports to do after-school. The teachers are apart of certain clubs but have the students run them so they get the chance to be a leader. Our clubs go far and are a lot of fun to be apart of.
