It's a great school with amazing staff! Administration and parents are extremely involved in students every-day life in school and academics! T-STEM does lack in some areas, but they do their best to ensure everyone's success, not just for students. They focus on giving back to their community and do as much as possible for everyone surrounding them.

I am currently a senior at Thomas Jefferson T-STEM and although our own district decides to ignore us our own administration does as well. The only good staff at our school are the janitors, bus drivers, and occasionally the one teacher who wants to see their students succeed. The way teachers teach I commend, but some teachers like to prefer some students over others, this has become a problem. The word 'fairness' can't be used to describe Thomas Jefferson as it is all based on if a teacher or certain staff member likes you. Our counselors did not make themselves present until the week before senior and I am sure that this is because they want us gone by the end of the year. All our counselors have done is told us about two different scholarship openings when there have been several. What I would change about this school is it's unfairness towards certain students and some teachers as they are horrible at teaching the most simplest of lessons.
Here at Thomas Jefferson T-STEM Early College High School there is a variety of opportunities offered to students. Our teachers are very encouraging and they are always willing to give us extra assistance, as well as the administrators! Overall, this is one the best high schools in Texas.
