    "TJ is honestly one of the most driven and motivated districts around. After graduating from TJ, I can honestly say my first year of college was basically a review of high school. TJ holds their students to a high level of education that I have ever experienced. Being a student, I would complain about school, no doubt, but in all honesty, I am so beyond prepared in college like no other student. Not only does TJ offer a wide variety of help if it's needed, but the teachers are all experts in their fields and the extracurricular activities TJ has to offer are astronomical. From outstanding athletics programs such as football, volleyball, track and field, golf, tennis, cheerleading, cross country, and so much more, along with them being the number one place to raise a striving family, TJ is one of the finest schools around. Along with a wealthy community around it, Thomas Jefferson prepares their students for the long run and is in my opinion, a very well education system all around. So parents listen, if you want to expose your children to one of the best education systems in PA, I not only highly but strongly suggest you consider sending your child to TJ, you wont regret it."

    "We recently had my daughter's Gifted Program meeting, and I am so impressed with the geniune concern from the teachers and administration to provide supplemental resource and activities for these students. Also, I want to acknowledge the involvement of our new superintendent, Dr. Panza. He attended the TJ Band festival and was very hands on and helpful during in directing the crowd during the rain down-pour and chaos, and a few days later I saw him attending the girls' volleyball game. I've never seen another administrator like that who has been so involve."

    "The academic programs are definitely very strong, particularly the English program. I never realized that I was light years ahead of other college-aged students in terms of grammar, research, and writing skills until I took a freshman writing class in college. When I was there, most of the teachers were nearing retirement age, but brought much experience to the classroom and still seemed very interested in teaching young impressionable minds. The sports programs overwhelm nearly all other extracurriculars -- far too much money has been spent on the football program over the years, culminating in the massive useless stadium. I participated in theatre and we often were lacking in funds. The band program is well-regarded, however. Safety has apparently become an issue in the last few years. There have been a lot of fights and threats in the last few years, but administration seems to keep things under control."

    "Thomas Jefferson gets you prepared for college better than anyother school. Their research program teaches students how to use notecards and bibcards at a very young age, but you use the same techniques you use in college. The resources that TJ provides with the AP program is wonderful. They get you ready for the next step even if your not. -Ryan 'Cisco' Franciscus"
