The interior of the school is clean, bright and it has a exterior security door that you must be buzzed through to access the school. Even though this is a newer school it does not have a stand alone gym. The gym area is sectioned in half during lunch by a folding wall. This school also lacks an auditorium so again the gym is the multipurpose catch all room. The library is well equipped with books and adequate computer stations. All the teachers I have dealt with are very knowledgeable, caring and have kept open communication with me about my students progress. Unfortunately, through no fault of there own, all they seem to do in school is test,test and test some more. This school also has one of the largest special needs enrollment in the district. The school is located in a neighborhood that is currently under construction so school boundaries may change in the future. Thomas Jefferson is located directly across from Aux Sable Middle school. TJ has a bland exterior and an extremely small play ground area. Also children will go out side for recess as long as it is dry and the temperature is 30* or above...so dress your kids warm!
