I love the school and the environment that the students and teachers bring. Teachers are excited to teach and students WANT to learn. In the school, students are being treated like adults and we learn to make our own decisions and we are all treated evenly. Students are encouraged to ask questions and are encouraged to be their own person.

Jefferson High School has a great academic program. The sports programs are really good and most of the coaches and teachers care for the student/athlete.
This school is the place to be. Although most dislike school, the teachers do their best to make it enjoyable for everyone. It may be a smaller school, but we have achieved many things that large schools haven't and that is why I'm so proud of this school.
