Jefferson High School Reviews

By a Former Student on

Some of the teachers are very genuine in going above the call of duty to help students strive even after high school helping them with a college plan. Others arent even qualified to teach curriculum at a 5th grade reading level. I had a teacher i couldn't even understand what he was saying. This isn't the schools fault after all though. Funding is really poor in this area or Oregon. The school is "literally" chipping away, falling apart. I hated the environment, loved some teachers, felt i was more competent than others, and really wished all of us could get a solid education there. OH! and the lunch makes me wanna puke. The kids put up with it, but for those too scared to say it, our lunches are no where near filing. milk is spoiled 60% of the time. FUND THIS SCHOOL, OR JUST REBUILD IT EVEN. THIS SCHOOL NEEDS OUR HELP!

It is a very good learning environment for all students. people might think that it is corrupt and horrible but they have dependable teachers that will help you learn and stay in line. Believe me, I went there for two full years in the John H. Johnson Young Men's Academy from day one.
