I went to Jefferson HS and it is a great school. They work with the best of what they have. The teachers and staff truly do care about your child's future and if they're going to college or not. The administration changed a lot during my stay, so hopefully that's not a problem. They have many excellent support groups. It is easy though to get mixed up in the wrong crowds. The school is vigilant for drugs and alcohol in campus and during events. The school is great if your child takes advantage of its resources. It has challenging teachers and supportive counselors. My 4 years was great and will happily go to a 4-year because of the support I got at Jeff.

I loved Jefferson. I am glad i attended this school rather than Westmoor. Of course we went through 3 principals and 2 vice principals in my 4 years there, but the ones we had when i left were doing a great job to hear the students out and provide a good support system. I was in student government for 2 of my years there. Overall a great school. You are what you make of the school, and not its' reputation.

I have 3 children, 2 have graduated from Jeff recently and I have one more who is in the 11th grade. Not all are academic achievers however I have no complaints and am overall happy that they have all attended Jefferson vs. Westmoor. My children have done well here and I have had great support from the administration as well. Jefferson has a reputation - but that's all it is - Know your kids and stay involved. That's the best advice I have for other parents with teenage children.

I love their reading and math program and how they focus so much on writing and reading starting from kindergarten. The school needs to work on security and safety of the kids. The kids should be picked up inside the school premise. I agree with the other comment about the school needing more structure, discipline and more homework. Overall, I am satisfied.

i have 2 kids at this school and they really have no complaints about the school. Matter of fact, they're glad to be going to this school rather than Westmoor or Terra Nova in Pacifica. It's not too many students, just right. Daughter likes being in the Varsity Basketball team even with her small stature, they pretty much give all a chance in participating, as far as I heard. It's not really as bad as you might have heard it out to be, maybe before, but seems to be a lot tamer. Kids are doing well there.

Jefferson high provides great extracurricular activities starting with band, dance, environmental beautification and so on. There technique in improving scores is giving students something to work for, such as off campus lunch. So far it has been working!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
