My experience at Jefferson High School has been great and beneficial. What I like about school is that teachers and students support mutually. For example, homework and fundraisers. Furthermore, a particular program I like about Jefferson High School is the Marching Band. Mainly, because I am a member of the special and magnificent band family. Especially, I am a clarinet player. In school, I would like to see a change in several classrooms. For instance, adjustments in refrigerations, heaters, and windows.

I liked how i have friends there. The security is okay. I guess, it's better not like I would know. i am only a student. The process of getting to one part of the school to another is annoying and such a hassle. The Construction barely started. Not only that, The construction will most likely so long that the the student in 8th, possibly even 7th will be able to see and experience it. Silva has and gets better treatment that Jefferson because they are a magnet school. Jeff provides little to none experience for majors . The internet is lackluster and could be better. It always buffers.
I transferred here from burgess early college because of an issue i had with the teachers and students. Basically everyone in that school. The teachers were not doing their job properly and i felt like they didn't care about teaching and the students were just plain rude. So much rudeness at that school. But here at jeff everyone was wonderful. The students were much nicer.. and the teachers... the teachers here are gifts of god. I want to thank them for everything they did for me. This is a great school id highly recommend.
