This is a good high school to send your kids. I recommend.

They need better teachers. Some teachers miss a lot of work days causing students not to learn at their fullest.

Great teachers, a long lasting committment to fine arts and significant upgrades to the facility are all reasons why I chose to raise my family in the Jefferson district. My wife as served as a substitute in the school and also interacts with several students throguh a private music lesson studio she operates. Located in a solid, safe working class neighborhood, this school is full of down-to-earth, hard working and smart students.Jefferson, Kennedy and Washington all provide an excellent, well-rounded education, and we're excited to be part of raising third-generation J-Hawks!

Jefferson has always had a proud tradition of excellence and high standards for the westside community. The school is currently going through a face lift and is poising itself to be among the elite schools in the city and state for the coming years.

I am proud to be part of Jefferson's faculty. We deeply care about our kids and work tirelessly on a daily basis to meet a tremendous amount of need. Sometimes the need is too great to address with the limited resources at our disposal (time, student to teacher/counselor/associate principal ratio) but I can say with absolute sincerity that we work with every ounce of energy that we possess to do what is right by our kids. There are many areas for improvement AND we also have a lot to be proud of due to our dedicated students, parents, community members and staff.
