I was a student at Jefferson High School I personally love this school. Learning is that main focus they offer lots of extra-curricular and sports I love this school beacause its the best it makes you feel like you are at hime
As a teacher at Jefferson for the last eight years, I am proud to say that Jefferson will become the best high school in West Virginia. The 2008-2009 year forcasts to be the best year ever with all the renovations completed , the population reduced and the addition of ninth graders. Academics and classroom environment are becoming the focus. The teaching staff is the best ever with a 30% turnover; most of the deadwood has been removed; the administration is on top of everything that is important, from safety to community service. If a student wants to learn, Jefferson offers every opportunity with all the fringe benefits of a public school social atmosphere. (I will have to say though, that it is unfortunate that not enough students took advantage of their opportunity to take my SQL, JAVA, or C++ courses this year.)

Jefferson high school is a great school we all know is overcrowded but in the fall of 2008 this probelm will be fix with the grand opening of Washigton high home of the Pratiots. Jefferson high school offers lots of extra-curriculums.
Both of my children go to this school, I'm sad to say. The school is disorganized, full of incompetent teachers, staff, and administration. It is overcrowded and no one cares if your child passes or fails. No one abides by the regulations in the student/parent handbook and I have yet to see what is done with the mass amounts of bullies in the system. I do not recommend sending your child to this school. If you are able, send your child out of state or to a private school.
