through the experiences of strong personal yet professional relationships, teachers seek to constantly challenge themselves and their students with the latest in strategies, formative assessments & summative performances.
It is not just the school but this region of town - socio economic challenges bring students to school often as first generation high school graduates...with the dettermination to defy the odds of their familial lineage
There is zero tolerance for anything denying respect between individuals. Relationships between all levels of indiividuals expands beyond class, cliche, etc... to provide for a more unified and respectful community.
My son graduated from TJHS in 2012 and he will be graduating from Morningside College in May 2015 (3 years). TJHS prepared him for college and he took advantage of the IWCC credits/AP classes while in high school. I think TJHS was an excellent fit for him and we open enrolled him into TJHS. Thanks TJHS!
I have been in CB Schools for 20 years. Thomas Jefferson High School is comprehensive high school with a beautiful, updated facility that we are all proud of. Great staff and great families round off a great school with many academic and extra-curricular opportunities that other schools outside CB Schools do not offer. Come and visit anytime, and see for yourself the positive, welcoming atmosphere TJ has to offer your student.
I am grateful for the students that come here every day willing to work and wanting to learn. I am also grateful for the kindness that many students have shown me during my time here, such as opening doors when my hands are full or saying thank you when I do something nice for them. We also have a great staff here that is always willing to listen and help when I need it.
