What I like about Jefferson High School is that they have various clubs for helping others! They have lots of sports to and all the teachers in this school are all helpful and will understand you. They will help you if you struggle on something! They all help you prepare for college and even have one on one with you and the guidance counselor on where you want to go for college and what you want to be! Something I want to change is, actually nothing the whole school is a great opportunity for anyone to join! Everyone is very caring and will be friends with you. They're marching band is really good and my favorite thing to do besides sports. I love this school and I can't wait to finish at Jefferson HIgh School! Go Eagles!

As a Junior at JHS, I’d say I know the environment well. There’s always room for improvement. Academically, everything is great. I wish there were more foreign languages than just Spanish and Latin, but otherwise clubs and everything else is great.
The teachers genuinely care about their students and the learning environment is very positive. There are many opportunities for student involvement through clubs, volunteer work, sports, and other extra curricular activities.
