I would very much like to commend Dr. Long for his attentive to the success of each student at JCHS. I have interacted with him, and he strives for the best. The schools offer a variety of programs for students to take advantage of. It is located in a rural area of Augusta, so it is not your typical suburban school in the most affluent area. However, it is very decent in how it is organized. Students are not as motivated and appreciative of what the school offers. Overall, I have heard from other parents who have great things to say about the school. Kudos, JCHS!!

I'm currently a tenth grader at this school. Most of the teachers care about the students and truly strive to help us reach our goals. But still, the school is, point blank, a failing school and the valedictorians of this school would all be average at average-schools. The teachers care, yes, and it has good programs, such as the one-act and band and chorus. Unfortunately, these get overridden in favour of sports like football. In fact, the school has almost nothing to do with these programs. I'm not saying it's bad that they've taken an interest to the football team, but I'd really prefer it if they'd spread their attention evenly between all extracurricular activities. Furthermore, nothing is ever really done about the mass amount of bullying and cruel remarks. Teachers and other students will sit back and watch a student be emotionally abused, and only help if it seems that it will escalate to violence. They show concern, sure, but they never step in to help. Some students even find it amusing.

I have already been going to Jefferson County High School for 9th, half of 10th, and right now in 11th grade. I have had a multitude of people in the schooling system that has helped me. There has been the few teachers that i disliked greatly, because the way that they taught. One of them that taught only in one way and thought that it was the omnipotent way of teacher that has failed many of the students that took his class. I am not saying that he is a bad but the place he needs to be at is a high class collage speaking lectures to a class of geniuses.

I attended high school at Jefferson County. I can say one thing about it the faculty really cared about each student. They always wanted to see us do our best. And as for the principal I have never meet someone so caring in my life if you had a problem you could go to her no matter what, she would always open her door to you. I look back on my high school days and wish I could change somethings but never JCHS.

I went to this school and successfully graduated, I went to 3 other high schools and home schooled for a year and a half and I have lost several credits from so many transitions. The staff worked with me and helped me get the credits I needed to graduate, some even used their own time to help me. The school that I went to before Jefferson County High was going to hold me back a year to catch up on my credits and offered me no help otherwise. Jefferson County High is an excellent school.

Jefferson County High is a great school. The faculty and staff not only strive to educate but they truly care about the students. Our motto is 'Six schools, one mission, every child, every day' Our pfinciple is not only a joy to work for but I have seen her personally do things for our school that are amazing. She is on the field at every football game passing out water. She has stopped by graduating senior's homes the night before the SAT to make sure they have sharpened #2 pencils. She is always the first one there and the last one to leave. She very visible. Everyday she partols the halls greeting and motivating students to do the right thing. She was also choosen as the 2007-2008 Met Life National Principle of the Year. She is a joy to work for and JCHS is a great place to work.

First of all, Jefferson County High School was opened in 1995, not in 1992 (as someone else suggested). I attended school there for 2 years before graduating there. The teachers are nice and even the staff, but the principal is a different story (I won't get into that. She came to JCHS as a principal from an alternative school-enough said.) When I attended Louisville High School, everything was pleasant, but when we transfered to the new high school, everything was so unorganized and still is. So, I can understand why JCHS is behind on all subjects on the graduation test....

Two of my sons attended Jefferson county High School back in 1992. Before this time they attended a school in Michigan. The school in Michigan had the best of everything money could buy EXCEPT teachers who cared about the student. Kids went by the wayside. The school at Louisville is much smaller and not as rich EXCEPT in teachers who really care about teaching. This made a world of difference to my kids. Their grades were so much improved by attending school in Louisville. Thank you to all the teachers there. Keep up the great work. You do make a big difference to your students!

My son goes to your school. I think that the school system to interact with the parents a lot more on the lines of having students that left to go on to do more come back to speak to the children on the level that they understands. With this vechile we can teach or instruct student about the future and find some of their veiws on life. I've tried to come out a couple of times to speak with no luck. There isn't time for that kind of stuff is more of less the attitude. But we need to take time and impliment these things in to the curriculum.
