The West Jefferson Hills School District dates to 1812 and, in 1952, transitioned from the Jefferson School District, incorporating residents and students from West Elizabeth, Jefferson Hills and Pleasant Hills. The high-achieving and innovative school community is the fastest-growing in Allegheny County, with student enrollment increasing 12.2% from 2017-18 to 2022-23 to more than 3,300. U.S. News & World Report has ranked Thomas Jefferson High School No. 15 out of 132 Allegheny County high schools the past three years.
