Main concern: systemic racism!!! Horrible school- teachers (not all of them fortunately). Some have bad attitudes and take them out on the students. Most school officials are very unprofessional. Not recommended.

Develops character: Disagree

The teachers are very negative and portray this onto the students, talking down to them, often in shouting and accusing voices. This type of behavior can't develop integrity, honesty and fairness as it is more likely to do the opposite.

I think as a parent that this is the best school in Columbia, Mo. The teachers, counselors & office staff are all great!

I have transferred my student from a private school to this one as it provided more opportunities and level of expectation than the private school. The Honors classes were very challenging and pushed my daughter to work hard. I see her maturity level and work ethic changing rapidly. The teachers are incredibly friendly and always willing to provide extra help. There are discipline problems, but what public school dosen't have them? My daughter never witnessed any of these serious problems throughout the year. Great school with an amazing staff!

I took my son out of a Catholic School environment to go to Jeff Jr. He was far more challenged at Jeff Jr. as a public school academically than he was at the Catholic School. He took Honors classes in the 8th grade, which he was unable to do at the other school. The class size was a bit larger, but any time he needed any help in any subject, all he had to do was talk with the teacher and they worked it out together. He became more responsible, more mature and time managed and more was demanded from him, therefore he performed to the task as expected and no one 'babied' him. He is much more prepared to enter high school now than he was before due to the expectations of him as a student. The parental involvement is pretty good, as well.

I actually go to Jeff. Its a good school, just because some students decide to act up doesn't make Jeff a bad school. The teachers really care about the students and what they have to say. They're hard on us because they know someday we're going to be great and change the world. Jeff is amazing and anyone who says it isn't just because of issues with disapline needs to live the day and the life of a student there and you'll see differently.
