  • I believe Jeffersonville High School is a good school. It's a big school but every kid has a friend. Sure there are fights but that's at any school. In the end it's all about the choices and grades you have made in the short four years you have to make them. There are bad kids at every school you just have to be a good kid and hang around the right crowd. Personally I love Jeff High. They have a lot of great programs that prepare you for the real world.

  • My son dgraduated from Jeff last year. He had a `3.8 GPA `and they did` not help him with any scholarships. Luckily now he is attending IUS but it is with no help what so ever from J?HS and we are paying for it, literally. Not only that, but he wanted the Academic-Scholar Diploma & because his counselor failed to tell him that`he was lacking one class of getting it he missed out. by the time he realized it in his JR yr it was too late because he needed other classes to prep for college. He could` & would have gladly changed his schedule around had he been aware of this at the appropriate time.

  • My grandson started attending Jeff High beginning his freshman year. The first two years were wonderful. The last two years the counselors dropped the ball and failed to assure that his schedules inclused his required classes needed to graduate. We were not informed until the second semester of his senior year that he had more than enough credits to graduate but not enough required credits. He at that point worked very hard to obtain the credits needed using a program call Nova-Net. He had all but four modules and a final test left to finish to obtain his required credits. The week before school was out, the program was down and inoperable causing him to lose a week of being able to obtain his goal. They would not allow him to participate in the graduation ceremony and he will have to attend about three weeks of night school. They will then mail him his diploma. I just want all parents to make sure each year that their children are taking the required classes needed to graduate. They failed my grandson. There was no communication between parent and counselors. We were under the assumption that one reason for counselors is to guide your child in the right direction to graduate which means making sure that the classes that are taken will get him there. At Jeffersonville High School, don't plan on this happening. You have to make sure yourselves that he or she is taking the classes needed. In another instance, a child had a 4.0 GPA and received a academic scholarship to U. Of L.. They did not help him obtain his scholdarship, he and his mother did the work themselves. Two weeks before school was over, his counselor called him down to ask him if he was planning on attending college. He at that time told her he had been accepted to U. of L. This alone should alert you to the problems that exist.
