West Jefferson High School Reviews

My experience was that of an average high school student. It was full of highs and lows! What I liked most were the handful of exceptional teachers I had the privilege to be a part of their classrooms. These wonderful dedicated teachers were tough but fair and provided a classroom environment where you wanted to succeed. The new administration is also a welcome change for the school as learning is now a top priority! I would like to change the lack of diversity in the system. Both in the student population and in the subject matter taught or even the clubs at the school to join. If you are new to the school be patient the student body will come around and let you be a part of the school activities.

West Jefferson is still very outdated. We focus more on the next game then we do on academics. The arts are extremely underappreciated. And we only have two or three clubs. If you're not in a sport then you really aren't well known, even though everybody knows who you are. News spreads like wildfire and drama is the biggest gossip and as soon as one person knows something, everyone else does.
What I liked at West Jefferson High School is that it's a small school so you know everyone and you could get one on one time. Something I would change about West Jefferson High School is more parent involvement with things!
