Thomas Jefferson School Reviews

All Categories
Thomas Jefferson is a day/boarding school that provides the best of classical education. Students from all over the world attend TJ, which makes it one of the more diverse student bodies in a Missouri school. The teachers are always available to the students and work hard to make sure the whole child is nurtured, so that a student's emotional maturity keeps pace with his or her intellectual maturity. Students leave TJ very well prepared to succeed at any college they choose.
Review Thomas Jefferson School
My school is an odd place. The class sizes are tiny, so I can know every person's name (of which there are a total of 83). Said classes are only 35 minutes long, which works for me, as my attention span is similar to that of the average field mouse. The school is most certainly not for everyone, but it works for me, as I can handle the rapid fire classes and huge workload. My only complaint is the food, a common topic of mockery at the lunch tables, but what else is to be expected from a place that goes through chefs faster than we can hire them?
I am the president of three clubs at this school and an avid participant in around seven, including Student Activities, Mock Trial, Equality Club, The student-run newspaper, student-run art magazine and I am editor of the Yearbook. To say that clubs are all inclusive and important is an understatement. Our robotics team is #1 in the State, and our Mock Trial team has incredible reviews from judges. Our clubs, while small, are incredibly hands-on. And the best part, if we don't have a club you want (we have 23-for 80 students that is a lot-) you can start your own! For example, my friends and I started and got funding for a completely student-run Coffee Buisness, which is now in it's second year of business. Clubs meet after school (which ends at 1:10) and aren't too much of a distraction from daily academics; and are more widely embraced than any other school I've seen.
