Welcome to Jefferson High School!

Dear Jefferson High School Parents and Students,

There is no doubt that the last year and a half has been a crazy and stressful period of life for all of us. Even though our school leaders, from the district office to the school administration, to our teachers and support staff, did an amazing job getting us in the school building and keeping us there all year, it has taken a physical and emotional toll on our students and educators. I hope you all have enjoyed a much-needed summer break after the 2020-21 school year. 

One silver lining from this Covid season is that we all learned some valuable lessons, and one of the most important is that being present in school is crucial to teaching and learning. Parents and guardians, I urge you going into this 2021-22 school year to make attendance at school a priority in your household. Students, you need to be at school to learn and grow and to be the best you can be emotionally and academically. 

We are excited to have our school resembling a high school campus again with students on the grounds participating in different camps, athletics, and academic events. These activities, in addition to our high standards and expectations in academics, are what makes Jefferson High School such a special and welcoming place. We pride ourselves on excelling scholastically with a variety of Honors and AP courses, along with 25 pathways in various career and technical classrooms, while offering some outstanding extracurricular and co-curricular opportunities as ways in which our students can get involved. Our Fine Arts and Athletic programs continue to work hard and excel in their respective fields. We hope that all of our students can find a club, organization, or extracurricular activity in which they can be a part. 

I encourage you to explore our website and learn more about the tradition and history that make the Jefferson City School System and Jefferson High School such a wonderful place to learn and work.

Our staff and faculty look forward to teaching and working with our students during the 2021-22 school year.


 

Sincerely,

Rob McFerrin
