    "Teacher's were more concerned with students getting good grades than the students understanding the material."

    "After my four years at Thomas Jefferson High School, I would not chose this school again all over. I also would not put my kids through this school. However, there were many different events at the school that I experienced that I enjoyed. These include; mini-thon, the annual musicals and plays, sporting events and being a member of the basketball team. The school district as a whole is very politically motivated and at times, doesn't seem to have the student's best interest at heart."

    "My family has enjoyed every aspect of TJ's terrific Music Program. The high school's building and grounds are old, and in disrepair. Because the school is old, the cafeteria is run-down and there is no swimming pool for the Swim Team. Despite what it lacks, Thomas Jefferson High School has lots of heart, and enthusiastic students and faculty, plenty of opportunities, and a wonderful Principal."

    "My children have been encouraged, inspired, and challenged by their teachers. They have a lot of respect for them. Except for one or two who are not creative, they enjoy all of their interactions throughout the day with their teachers! Unfortunately the teacher's uniqueness is stifled when standardized testing demands that they teach lessons tailored only to get good results on those tests."
    Topic: Academics | Rating:
    Posted 2016-02-01
    "In our experience, the teachers overall have been wonderful. Scheduling process is a bit confusing and awkward. Workload is very much in balance - leaving time for enriching extracurriculars and part-time jobs for students. This is a relatively small school with slightly above average academics."
