I find Thomas Jefferson Charter School to be an amazing school, especially the high school and its teachers. My children have grown tremendously while attending this school and I feel very confident that they will be prepared for college and work. My children have been reading advanced texts in their US History, Government, Economics, and English courses. They have been exposed to college level material that requires high levels of critical thinking and analysis. I find the teachers in these courses to be very helpful and supportive of my children's learning. The teachers have exposed my children to multiple perspectives within the subject areas. Beyond this, my children have been required to synthesize multiple perspectives in order to formulate their own opinions with reasoned arguments; all of this with near college level material. WOW!!!! Teachers are highly qualified and open minded with many of them holding Master degrees. I could not ask for a better school, learning environment, or a better staff to support my children's learning. I am grateful for the quality of education that my children have received while attending TJCS. THANK YOU TJCS!!!!!

I am currently a Senior in Thomas Jefferson Charter school. When beginning school here you are told things are much harder and that's how they "weed out" the good kids and the bad. The good stick around and the bad face disciplinary action and if no change is made they are removed. Truth is, that's not the case at all. TJCS used to be a school were smart kids went to better their education and when they were tired of the typical public schools way of doing things. Now it's a savior school, all these kids who've been kicked out of Caldwell flock here because they don't want to go to Canyon Springs. No change is made in their attitude or work ethic or habits, rather than work for their grades they push the bare minimum and teachers pass them through just like in a public school because that is what is expected of them now. Can't fail a large bunch of kids without it making the teacher/school look bad. The teachers are fantastic and they do the very best they can with the situations they're given. Administration needs to stop turning a blind eye to these situations and actually do something about them. 3 strikes and you're out. A great school, must have great students.

I am a student at this school and I think this school is exception both in education and moral values. The principal doesn't tolerate any immodesty or swearing from us students, and I really appreciate that, especially with our society's standards taking a nose-dive. TJCS also offers multiple concurrent classes. I am currently enrolled in Concurrent History and I love it! The teacher is immensely helpful and makes sure that nobody is left behind. I love all my classes and I am 100% positive that this charter school outranks any public school without a doubt, especially in moral excellence. One of my good friends wanted to transfer to a public school because she had the common misconception that a public school would have more "opportunities." This particular public school had such degrading, filthy, and immoral standards that I shuddered and wished to be in a better place by merely passing through its dreary hallways. Fortunately I convinced my friend to stay at my school and avoid the morally degrading environment which she nearly subjected herself to. I am so grateful that schools like TJCS with outstanding academic programs and strict moral values still exist!

My daughter is beginning her senior year. She has been at TJCH for two years. TJCS has been a huge blessing for us. The Caldwell High School was not teaching. As a freshman she watched movies, played cards and colored. At TJCS she has been preparing forcollege, doing internships, community service, and innovation projects. Regarding the board: I have not had any issues. Regarding the principal: Mr Ward has rules that must be followed. I admire that. My daughter has followed the rules and we have had no issue at all. Moving her to TJCS was the best decision we have made in her education and growth as a person who will contribute in a positive way to society.

After 3 years, I continue to be happy! This is a school of choice that is full, has a waiting list and kids who learn. My child has progressed academically, has to work hard, thinks, and has to help others as he attends this school. I appreciate the leadership, the teachers and the other staff members!

Well I AM SOMEWHAT HAPPY WITH THE SCHOOL BUT DO NOT LIKE THE PRINCIPLE THEY HAVE HE IS NARROW MINDED AND SELF CENTERED! AND VERY JUDGEMENTAL BEFORE EVEN GETTING TO KNOW A PARENT!~ FIRST HE ASSUMES HE KNOWS IT ALL AND IS A POMPUS OLD PREJUDICE MAN WHO TAGETS STUDENTS AND THEIR PARENTS DUE TO HIS PERSONAL OPINION~! hEY LIKE lUNA SAYS GET THE WORST OUT AND BRING NEW! THAT WILL ENCOURAGE OUR CHILDREN~! NOT DISCRIMINATE!

Excellent teachers in high school Math, English, Art, and Spanish. The history and government teachers are a detriment to the students. The history teacher has no passion for history, her instruction is lame. The Econ teacher grades students not on knowledge but on whether they regurgitate his liberal stances on America, capitalism and the military. He is a pinhead, not a Patriot. I sometimes wish I'd transferred to a different high school. Patronizing board and administrators. It's do as we say, not as we do. Neither the principal nor board seem adult enough to have open, honest discussions with the students or parents. They want everyone to carry pom poms and shout how great they are and if you don't they'll wave the pom poms themselves. The first graduation was more about the board and teachers than focusing on the graduates.

My kids have been at TJCS since Kindergarten and now that we are moving out of town, leaving this school will be the hardest part of moving on.. Especially knowing how many opportunities the high school has to offer and the inovative teaching methods and hands on experiences are to be had.. Sorry to leave TJCS but very happy for whoever gets to fill our spots!

Longer class periods, teachers know the students well and are very aware of the needs. They can also tailor programs to suit the needs of the students.

Both of my daughters attend this school. It is an intricate environment, one class per grade. The teachers are very invested, their own children attending, and it shows in the care and dedication they display. It is a great learning environment, and I feel fortunate that my kids are able to attend. Highly recommend.

Both of my sons transferred to Thomas Jefferson this year and I could not be happier with the standard of learning, teachers and staff. This is an excellent learning environment.

If you want a great education this isn't the place to go. A public school will over more AP classes and more electives. They say that they teach at a accelerated rate but they don't. A 4.0 student who transfers out in High School is behind when they go to public school and it is very hard to make up all the accelerated classes they missed. Also they don't offer AP classes with a teacher, you have to take them over the Internet

We have 4 children at TJCS and have had them there from it's beginning. The teachers are incredible, the system is second to none the only issue is that the High School could use some tweaking. They are working on it though.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Idaho used the Idaho Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, math and language usage, and in grades 5, 7 and 10 in science. Students may also take the ISAT in grades 11 or 12 if they were not able to do so in grade 10. The scores from the spring administration are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The grade 10 ISAT is a high school graduation requirement. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering the specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Idaho. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Idaho used the Idaho Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, math and language usage, and in grades 5, 7 and 10 in science. Students may also take the ISAT in grades 11 or 12 if they were not able to do so in grade 10. The scores from the spring administration are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The grade 10 ISAT is a high school graduation requirement. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering the specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Idaho. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

The different student groups are identified by the Idaho Department of Education. If there are fewer than 11 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
