I attended Jefferson High School for 4years. Their band program is well known for being probably the best in the area, including Virginia and Maryland. The teachers that I had in my 4 years, were dedicated and wanted to see me succeed. They offer help if you need it and there are lots of extracurricular clubs to join if you choose. They also have a variety of sports programs offered. Some things that could be improved are maintenance of the school and more vigilance of the students. Many students are still able to smoke and take drugs in the bathroom and other areas where there is no monitoring. The school also does not treat all sports programs equally which is unfair to the athletes. Some programs are provided transportation, while other sports programs they expect parents to transport. But for the most part, I would say Jefferson High school was a very good experience and I was prepared for college when I graduated from there

Jefferson High School is overall, a great school. The faculty and staff are kind and engaged. They strive to get students interested in education and the community. The music program is amazing. I've had a great time working with so many talented people and an instructor who loves his job. I'm also involved with the school's theatre program. It's filled with so many passionate students, and it has given me many opportunities. It has helped me grow as a person. The teachers are great. I only wish we could have more academic opportunities available. The classes are limited, but it's hard to get more because West Virginia has relatively low funding. In t he end, it's still a great school with staff that care about the students.
Jefferson High School is a decent school and there's nothing really outstanding about it. Some teachers are truly mediocre if you take normal classes. But if you take some of the ap classes that are offered here, there are some teachers that are extremely passionate about helping their students succeed. While the education aspect of the school is kind of lacking, the general experience is fun. There is a one hour lunch period which is quite unique. It provides students a time to catch up on homework, study and socialize.
