Absolutely awful. The only thing it taught me is that it is important to get my future kids a better schooling than I had.

I attended JCHS and survived. Not much had changed since I attended - there is little focus on education and a lot of focus on anything else. The administration and the school board have tried various things to distract from the low test scores - scheduling changes, academies, etc. Still, the school ranks in the bottom ten percent of schools statewide on APR scores. As a parent, I wouldn't feel comfortable sending my kids here.

I don't know what people are thinking--this school is amazing. I am currently at Westminster College, and JCHS did more than just prepare me for college; it gave me a leg up. I am a 2013 graduate. I was in National Honors Society, Key Club, and Hispanic Honor's Society. I graduated with a 3.75, working hard in that school. Now, because of that education, I am in the Honor's Program here, am at sophomore status because of the dual enrollment opportunities that were given to me at JC, and am currently at a 4.00 GPA, because I have been doing exceptionally well. JC gave me the necessary tools in learning, leadership, and excellence to push on. Yes, those who do not try will not get the same experience that I did, but can't that be said for any high school? JC is excellent, and is never given enough credit.

I graduated from JC 4 years ago and it seems like it hasn't improved much. A lot of these reviews are correct. If you're a normal kid, you'll do really well there. But if you're not, it's going to be tough. And seriously high school is hard enough. Teachers totally gave up on me because I have a different way of learning. I know for a fact that most of my teachers didn't expect me to graduate college. Now I'm in graduate school at one of London's top universities. Money is put in to sports because the coaches are amazing. I am not an athlete but I ran track and had many coaches for teachers and THEY were the ones pushing me to succeed. The administration helped me through my four years there but it seems like the people I had are gone now. There's a difference between teaching kids how it is in the real world and not helping kids to succeed. Being underpaid isn't an excuse. If teachers were in it for the money they would be doctors. I won't be sending my kids to JC when I have them, but if you don't have a choice, don't worry. A lot of great kids come out of JC. The drugs are bad which I attribute to absent parents. But it's inevitable that kids in Jeff City will have a run in.

My wife and I have had several (6) (3 girls and 3 boys) kids attend the Jefferson City Public School system. I would highly recommend the elementry schools for their Professionalism and Heart in making sure that our children are well educated. The Jefferson City High School is an entirely different matter. It all starts with lack of strong leadership, ethics and principles (not principals). One of my kids had a rough time with one of the School Administration to the point that he dropped out. He tried several times to go back with little to no evail. I hold the School Leadership partially to blame for allowing my child to drop through the cracks.
