    This school is great. My son truly enjoys it and the teachers and principle genuinely care about the welfare of the students.

    I'm going into 9th grade this year and I am upset because I already miss North Jefferson! The staff teachers and most of the students really are nice and they make you feel at home. I think the people I'll most miss is the principal Coach Kanaday and my eighth grade math teacher Coach Rosser. I would go as far as to say we are the best school in the state. Our teachers all actually do their jobs and try to make learning fun by letting us have partners when it's appropriate study by going on "studyisland.com" ipods ipads anf lots of other things. When is say we are allowed to use iPods and iPads I don't mean you dit there and listen to music..no there are apps for each subject and they really are useful and fun. The forteachers do enforce their rules so just be warned..as long as you do what youre supposed to their won't be any problems and you'll have a lot of fun too! Just some examples the field trip trip for ARMT and SATs. Back to school bash. The "Olympics". They usually let you wear your costumes. Different kinds of dress up days. TRUST ME! If you just do what you are supposed too you might not ever want to leave...

    Incredible School! Academics Athletics & Arts...they are second to none. This community and feeder pattern of schools is the best in Jefferson County if not the state.

    The school challenges the gifted and non-gifted students. Excellent leadership and teachers. New facility is excellent.

    My oldest daughter attended the school only half a year and we moved. Having to switch school districts was the only thing I regretted when we moved even though I am happy with the new school I still miss this one. The teachers are AWESOME!!!!! Great school district if you are looking.

    This is my son's second year at North Jefferson and we are very pleased with the exceptional teachers coaches and activities this school offers. There are two teachers who have had such a great impact on my son and that is Ms. Akin Math teacher and Coach Maze Social Studies and football coach and I thank both of them for an outstanding job! The school has rules as far as tucking in shirts and hair length and I do believe that has made our students more respectful to fellow students and teachers. We have only had one minor issue with just one teacher and the vice principal took care of it immediately and my son sufferred no reprocussions because of the incident and have had absolutely no other complaints of the school whatsoever! If you're looking to move to this school district you will not be disappointed!
