  • Thomas Jefferson High School is comprised of grades nine through twelve with a current enrollment of approximately 1,050 students.  There are sixty-three full time staff working at the school to support a strong core academic focus with a variety of elective experiences.

    The building and facilities have been updated through various renovations.  The most recent project was the reconstruction of the stadium.  This included the field and track area as well as the stands and press box.  A field house was also added at this time.

    Thomas Jefferson High School is well known for high academic standards and competitive athletic programs.  Approximately seventy percent of graduating seniors go on to four-year college programs.


    Curriculum Night is an opportunity for students and their parents to learn about the scheduling process,  academic changes, and post-secondary planning timelines. Guidance staff and administration will provide a brief, but informative, presentation and be available to answer questions.
