After attending 5 years at Jefferson Community School in Port Townsend, my son just completed IB placement exams for English, Math and Spanish -- He qualified for High Level in all 3 subjects! In addition to the richness of community building and expeditions, JCS prepared him very well academically. I am extremely pleased with the success of this school. The dynamic staff inspires students to rise to their highest goals.
