Athletics and fitness are very important at Jefferson Davis High School! we have many sports and a excellent band. This year our girls basketball team were the State Champions of the 6A schools. Last school year (2014) our boys basketball team made it to the play offs. At every football game our band performs which I'm apart of! At every game of all sports at least 50% of the student body will participate if not more not including scouts, recruiters and family.

I like this school because I get taught what I need to be learning also, the guidance counselors tells you about your credit for graduating whether you're passing or not they tell you where you need to start from and what you need to do. I wouldn't choose this school because the overcrowding students in one classroom I like private schools better and I see why a lot of parents choose that. I'm definitely going to put my kid in a private school.

The environment is unsafe. They have lockdowns, drug/weapon searches regularly. Fights throughout day.
