This is an excellent school. I graduated from jeff in 2008! I came from a catholic high school previous to my year at jeff. I could no longer afford my education and was told to attend my neighborhood school. I was very scared at first because of the rumors I heard.

Jefferson is an inner city high school that is trying hard to reclaim its former glory days. They have a great partnership with a local non-profit theater group, Stumptown Stages, which involves the acclaimed Jefferson Dancers, and gives the kids opportunities to learn from and work with professionals to put on fabulous shows like The Wiz and A Chorus Line. They truly need and deserve financial help because their parent base is not at all affluent.
