i am a junior at tj and i really like this school. There are some really great teachers and students. Despite the fact of having a bad reputation, i fell that tj has passed through that. There are a lot of clubs and sports students can take. The only thing i don't like is that there isn't much diversity and some of the rules like dress code but other than that its a great school and do recommend

I am a very proud 2011 graduate from this school. I was in Cary when TJs reputation plummeted BUT I saw Thomas Jefferson High School change. Teachers, administrators and students alike decided to make a difference. The reputation of this school is rising sky high. Even though it has its ups and downs like any other school, I believe it will only get better.

thomas jefferson is great many people criticize this school causee ofits past with the drugs and they don't really recognize that every student at j are great, smart, and that they hav dreams just like any other student in he world. I think peple should just stop criticizing and stop talking about the school cause every scool has problms wit drugs and they might not even know it or might know it and hate to admit. Our school is great our pnciple is awesome and so are the teachers

I attended this school 3 years, 9th 10th and 11th grade. I regret not graduating there. thomas jefferson high school is one of the best schools I've attended, there are good teachers such as mr.Sanchez (chemistry), mr.Summers (english 1), mr.Vasquez (english 3 & 4), mrs.Roth (art), ms.Islas (algebra), mr.Muniz (french & spanish), Mrs.Sneed-Hardy (dance). this school is amazing, and even though it had some problem this school is still the best. people attending Thomas Jefferson High School should be proud and glad they are there, they are lucky to be there.

Low performance in academics. The school is does not have a good sports department. There is not much parent involvement since it is populated with low income families who work and do not have much time to attend parent-teacher meetings.

TJ has very smart, well bevahed students and very good extra-curricular activities, but us parents definitely need to be more involved.
