    I am an alum of Thomas Jefferson School ('03) and still remain involved with the school. Unequivocally, TJ helped shape not only how I think and learn, but also who I am today. The faculty is not only deeply knowledgeable in their content areas, but also takes great joy in working directly with students. The curriculum is extremely rigorous, and I found I needed to get to my junior year of college before the coursework challenged me in a way that I was challenged in high school. Given the small size of the school, it's not for everyone, but anyone looking for an immersive experience that is guaranteed to change a child's life trajectory, consider TJ.

    My experience at Thomas Jefferson School so far has been excellent. The academics are very challenging; however, there is no shortage of fun. When you are in a grade at Thomas Jefferson it feels more like a family. Even after being a part of this school community for a short time, you know almost everyone who comes through the door in the morning. You always feel supported and well cared for by your fellow classmates and the teachers and our teachers will always help us trying to let us reach our full potential. In all, Thomas Jefferson is a wonderful school that really embraces their students and lets them shine.
    This is such a fantastic school! There are constantly expanding clubs and activities. The teachers and staff are extraordinarily smart; I simply could not a better fit for me. The class sizes are perfect for one on one teacher student connections. This is such a great place with fantastic diversity.
