The Jefferson County High School genuinely is a school of family. If you, as a student, attend school here, obey the teachers, and complete assignments effectively and on time, you have nothing to worry about. I would say that its is very traditional and executes procedures strictly by the book. Overall, my experience at the Jefferson County High School was unforgettable.

I feel safe at school regardless. There has never been a time that I felt uncomfortable, misplaced, or out of place.

What makes this school so unique is the teachers that work there. They make you feel as if you do matter. If I have to do it all over again, I wouldn't choose no other school but this one.
