Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I am a teacher at Jefferson. I appreciate the comment that says we are caring and may I add, very dedicated to serve our population. We have professional development to teach us different ways to reach students where they are at in their learning. We constantly look at data to give us direction to our instruction. Our principals are leaders and role models. We are innovative, creative, and eager to do our best! I appreciate the students leaving their comments. I do hope that more or our students that have had an AWESOME education here at JJH, will speak up and leave their comments, also!

This is a horrible school with horrible teachers, and a horrible atmosphere. There are cops at the lunchroom everyday to stop fights and do drug busts. Gangs of kids, everywhere you look. I went one year and hated it, so I home schooled the next year. If it comes down to home schooling or that, dare I call it, "school"0, choose home school. Save yourself from the stress of uncaring teachers and busloads of homework. Almost nobody there was willing to learn. Definitely would suggest getting an education elsewhere.

I love the school. It has an amazing academic program, I've learned a lot. Our Theatre department and English department is the best. I'm rockin' a B point grade average. You'll learn, the teachers there are absolutely devoted to helping the students learn.

Jefferson was overall a good school, not great but good. i graduated from there in '07 and i had a good experience. But ever since our class left everything has gone down hill from there. student participation isn't as high as it was. Sports teams aren't doin very well due to lack of school spirit. and also the SBO program wasn't as good as it was when i was in 7th grade, no one really knows who the SBO's are anymore, mainly because their pictures aren't on the wall. and most of the SBO's don't really make and effort to be seen or heard, some of them do, but not all . If they were just to have more school spirit, things would get better.
